It is an offen asked question that a PPC client might have. How can i see my ads? Why i can’t see my website come up when i search my brand/main service keywords on baidu? It is because of we have choosen not to target the rest of the world, the campaign could be running in China only. It is decided by your project, your target audience is in China, but you are in the other country. We show ads to target audience only. Unless you have target audience in the rest of the world, we will set it up for you.
But you can use baidu fengchao’s Ad Preview tool (please make sure that you have already login the account when you click on the link) to check real time ads.
You can select a specific city from the dropdown list. Normally, the client is much more interested in tier 1 cities like 北京, 上海, 广州, 深圳… You can choose to see the ads on mobile only.
Search term mornitor
This is the most important report to look at. It helps you to determin if the traffic are coming from relevant keywords.

We will generate this report automatically everyday.
