    Hi Not sure if this in the correct section, Please feel free to move it.

    I am in the UK and I am using Google Adwords to promote my site on Google France. According to Adwords my site is live, however when I search for my site on google france I cannot see my advert. Is this because I am in the UK ? Would using a french ip address allow me to see the advert ?
    If yes how can I obtain a french IP address ?

    Well, in your case, these things matter!!

    They wont show you your ad, as long as you are signed in into the google account, which you use for adwords!

    And next, you will never see your ad, or it will never be displayed, when you are out bid!!

    I.e if 5 other advertisers target the same keyword, with a bid more than yours, your ads wont be shown!

    and finally, Adwords adverts appear on the content networks rather than on search due to the high bidders!

    Hope that solved your doubts!

    I dont know of a way to see the ads ourselves, or rather wouldnt need a one!!

    it's probably because your bid is below that of other ads, it doesnt always show, refresh the page 10 times and see if it shows up at all

    Thanks for your reply. I know about being out bid.

    Does any one know if using a french IP address would allow me to see my French Adwords advert here in the UK ?

    That might help, certainly worth a try if you can find a french proxy

    Why do you want to see it? You know what it looks like, you created it no? I don't see what all the fuss is about. If it's profitable, up the budget. If it's not, bin it.

    Wrong information, completely!

    To OP - you can check if your ads are showing or not from inside of your adwords account. Click on "Opportunities" and then "Ads diagnostic Tool: - lower left hand side and go on from there.

    If your ads are not showing, they will give a reason there as well.

    Done that already the Ads diagnostic tool says the adverts are showing.
    I just want to see the ad with my own eyes. And also I want to know where about the advert is.

    Why is my french ip address not fooling google ?

    I can't help in terms of the ip address but I wanted to see my ad as well, because I thought MIVA was charging me and not showing my ads. I ended up putting an exact word match like: [online money] and then going into Google and typing that phrase. Boom- I was right there sitting pretty. This did not work when I had broad search terms.

    Hope that helps

    Completely?

    So there is no outbidding, and content network advertising which takes 99% of advertising?

    Crazy!

    Just tried using the demo version of Identity cloaker. Still cannot see my adwords advert on the google.fr According to adwords my advert is averaging 2nd position. Why can I not see the bloody thing using a french proxy. To make it worse I can see one of my compettitors on google.fr who is also based in the UK. Why can I see there advert and not my own ?

    Outbidding ?? You may actually pay less and be on top in search results. What matters is the quality score.


    Crazy ? Yes, it is crazy - OP talks about Google france and you post a reply about content network :confused:

    There is a tool called ads preview as well, did you try that ?

    So CPC has no Role? Ads are placed depending on their CPC!!

    Quality score just determines if the ad should be displayed in that instant! :)

    I said him, ads may not always come on the Google.fr search engine, but it would be 99% be displaying on content network :)

    Neither I wish to Ruin this thread!

    Content Network is the Ads Shows as adsense ads!

    If You dont know, Google it!

    And kindly take a search before calling some one with "Completely Wrong Information"
