can´t see google ads
« on: April 12, 2012, 04:15:27 PM »
Hi,

I need some help cos i have tried everything.

Basically, i only see vey few google ads on my browser, i live in Spain and lot of the searches i do, no ads appear but if i call some friends in USA to check for me, they inform me that there are tons of ads.  Very rarely on certain searches i see ads.
I just did a search on weight loss and no ads appear, which seems impossible.

Have aleady tried to open google USA but still nothing appears.

Any tips would be very helpful.

Thanks

Hi Kas,

I have no answer for you, and simply want to tell you to 'hang in there', someone will be along shortly with the knowledge to help yo with this, but unfortunately I am not that person.

I also live in the US and get way too many ads from 'G', sometimes I wish I had your problem!

Good luck,

HoneyJo

Here's a tool that'll help: http://www.labnol.org/google-adsense-sandbox/

Just paste in the URL of the page you want to preview and the country that you want to see ads for, hit the button and voila!

Here's another one where you can select and compare ad types: http://googleadspreview.blogspot.com/#

I hope this helps!

I see the page Andrew mentions includes "contextual" advertising. This post MIGHT help

Meg, the technique shown in your linked post only works when within the same location of Google and is for search results only. Not ads.

The pages I linked to enable you to input the page you want to look at and the national market location. This enables you to see examples of ads that will be shown in particular markets. So, Kas is in Spain and I am in Estonia. If we want to see the kind of ads our pages (or keywords) will attract in the US we need something like the pages I linked.

Spoofing the IP address does not work too well. IP is only part of the location signalling tools that Google has and uses. They also use stuff like wifi router info, ISP location.

Of course, even within national markets the big G now uses geolocation and so even the tools I linked are only a guide. The results may differ between, for example, Baton Rouge and Boise because Google know that over 50% of all searches have local intent and they try to reflect this in the results they show.

Thanks a lot Andew, Meg and HJ.  starting day here , will try it now Andrew. Hope i can get it going, wanna do adsense sites and so frustrating not to be able to see the ads.  The only other source i use is spyfu, where it shows the number of advertisers.

Thanks guys, you are all always very helpful

No worries! Now you need some new sites to cover the niches.
I'm just doing marketing. ;)

Google's official tool for this is AdPreview tool where you select your location from where you want to check the ads.

adwords.google.com/d/AdPreview/
