For newbies, verifying an Ad for its working is a cumbersome task. Google may need 3-4 days to verification of account as well as your ad campaign. So naturally the curiosity of advertiser or Ad agency will be stretched up. So, it’s essential to know the procedure to check, whether Ad is running or not on Google AdWords.
Method A: Hover a mouse over Status
Simply move the mouse cursor on the status cell, within a moment the Tooltip box will be shown. It will reveal the status of your Ad. Red colored No badge clearly mentions the Ad is still in the verification process. Moreover, Ad campaign gets approval. However, due to pending verification of a user may add some time to running the Ad campaigns. For more information see the below screenshot.
Method B: Via Google’s Official Ad Preview Tool
- Visit Google’s Official AdPreview Tool
- Sign in
