Try this: In your AdWords account, go to Tools and Analysis > Ad Preview and Diagnosis There you can test different Locations.
I found the tool to be quite precise. However the radius in miles will never be exact, since google can not know the exact location for a pc, only the ip-number, which is related to a provider in most cases.

instand1, thanks. I've tried that and it says the ads are being displayed. No doubt an internal version of this is what Google are using to tell me I'm wrong.
But two people that aren't idiots who *really *are *there say they can't see the ads when Google says they are running. I believe them.
Unless it's a bug, there's only three things I can think of.
1) The low QS Make new pages and a new campaign pointing to them and re-launch when the ads are scored 7 or more
2) Budget This is being exhausted nearly every day and AdWords data lags by a few hours; maybe the budget was already exhausted when my testers checked for me. Maybe Google has some feature that disadvantages people who always hit target spend.
3) Some new attention-grabbing Google feature Say a new partner/affiliate price comparison widget for this vertical (although I would have thought this would affect my national ads too).
