Hello and welcome,

 

If I am not mistaken, you are referring to searching your own ads on Google search.

 

Please note that it is not recommended that you do live searches on Google because this will hit your own numbers like impressions, CTR etc...

 

There's Ad Preview Tool meant for the advertisers to use it for real time results of Google search.

Also, if you can do the keyword diagnosis and see if your ads are currently running or not. Hover mouse over the speech bubble of individual keyword and see what it says.

 

Let us know if that helps!

Hi richmobileclini,

 

Google keeps track of what ads have been shown to you and which ones you click on. If you frequently do a live search for your keywords on Google to see your ad but never click on it, sooner or later Google will stop showing you that ad.

 

This is one of the best reasons to use the ad preview tool instead.

 

Best of Luck!
