Why you may not see your ad
Looking everywhere for your ad but still can't find it? Start by performing a search for your text ad with the Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool. It can help you confirm that your ad is running without racking up impressions (which will lower your clickthrough rate). You also can hover over the speech bubble in the "Status" column of the Ads tab next to the ad of interest to get detailed information about ad serving status. If your ad isn't showing, the tool will tell you why, and give you tips to help get your ads up and running.
If you're still having trouble, click the button below that best describes your situation. You'll see a list of possible reasons why you might not see your ad, along with steps to fix the problem.
