The answer is Yes! And I strongly recommend previewing your ads before you release them, as this can help you to spot errors before they go live.

While creating or editing your display ads through the Google Ads web interface, a preview pane opens on the right-hand side of the page. By default it shows the mobile preview, but you can also choose desktop preview by clicking on the desktop icon. Don’t forget to preview your ad on both mobile and desktop.

It’s particularly important to preview and check Responsive Display Ads carefully, because Google creates these for you and you don’t want to discover later that the logo is missing or an image is cropped strangely or the titles or text don’t mix well.

One thing to keep in mind when previewing Display ads – the preview isn’t always exactly what a user will see.

With responsive ads, Google will resize the different elements to fit the space. Sometimes to make them fit well they will animate the ads such as rotating between the title and description. Google may also make the colour from the image wrap around the border for the text rather than having the image and the text entirely separate.

So, when it comes to Google’s “creative license” with RDA ads, unfortunately you can’t preview these to the level of detail you might like.

When you preview your responsive ad it will also show you text and native formats even if you have these turned off. You can toggle between formats to only show Image ads if you have text ads turned off.

When it comes to fixed-size ads, the preview should exactly match the way the ad will look, with the exception of ecommerce Dynamic ads, which adjust the pictures of products in line with a shopping feed.

It’s important to always preview fixed-size and Dynamic ads as well, so that you know what its going to look like in real life. Previewing enabled us to spot and fix this error in an ecommerce Dynamic ad where the same product showed up twice:

Jodi Benjamin Ecommerce Google Ads

I engaged Petras services because I was looking for someone to manage my google ads for my ecommerce business. I got that and SO MUCH MORE.

I was always very intimidated by google ads. I simply could not get my head around how to run and optimise a successful campaign, so I did not use it.

Then someone recommended Petra and my world changed. She is very data orientated, very analytical and razor focused on the small details, everything I am not good at. I never ever log into my google ads because I know Petra and her trusty team are all over it, and my google ads continue to drive very profitable traffic to my ecommerce store.

Since having Petra on my team I have grown considerably and I get about a 10x ROAS from my google ad spend. She has an open door and always has time for me and my million questions.

To top that all off, she is also a super nice and friendly person and has become a customer and huge fan of my brand. What more could you want! .

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.
