How do you find Google Adwords Ads in different Locations? I made this ad for someone who lives in NYC.. The ad is only showing for users in their area. How can I view the ad on Google when I don't live near NYC.. With Yahoo you goto their homepage, click on local and change to NYC and I'm able to see the ad in search as if I was living in NYC.. How can you do this with Google? anyone know?

When logged into Adwords look for Tools.
It has moved around recently. Then look for "Ad Preview Tool", there you can choose the google version... .com etc.
You can then choose a location in a variety of ways. From country, city, or lat and longitude.

You can also use something like this, altering the keywords and City/State name and abbreviation so you can see the actual ads outside the preview tool (and actually click on them if you need to):

All good answers thanks... I did get this from Adwords today..
You can search for an ad that it targeting a specific region even when you are physically not located in that region. To search for an ad, please include the location in your search query. For ex: a user in Detroit, US, searching for 'New York hotels' on Google will see ads targeting New York.
When possible, Google analyzes users' search queries for location names in order to show regionally targeted ads. This search functionality applies to ads targeting most locations worldwide.
Hope this answers your concern. Please write back to me should you require any further assistance.

Two big benefits of using the Ad Preview Tool are:
1) It doesn't increase the impression count for your keywords (and thereby lowering the CTR, assuming you're not clicking on your own ad)
2) It doesn't affect the ad position. AdWords ads are personalized on each computer, and ads that are shown many times but not clicked often are deemed to be less interesting and given a lower ad rank. So if you're viewing your ads repeatedly the regular way, you will eventually see the ad position go lower and lower on your PC -- even though it will still appear in the original position for the vast majority of users out there.
The main disadvantage of the Ad Preview Tool is that you cannot click the ads, but normally you don't want to be doing that anyway.--
