Now it's easy to see how your ads look in the eyes of regular users. Let's say a client wants you to make a screenshot of a specific banner on a certain site and send it to them. Now the client can see their own ad themselves by clicking the “Preview” button in their account.
How it works
To see your display banner, open the ad group by clicking on the number of ads in it. Click the “Preview” button to the right of the banner you want to see. You will be able to see your banner on sites in the Yandex Advertising Network and external networks for 10 minutes after pressing the button. Report Wizard offers a list of sites where it has already appeared — go to any site from the list and you will find your banner there. Please note that you can only preview one banner at a time. If you click the “Preview” button for more than one banner, you will see the preview of the banner you clicked last.
This function is only available for active campaigns and ads that successfully passed moderation. Currently it is accessible in the old Yandex.Direct interface, and will soon be available in the new interface as well.
Impressions and clicks involved in these previews are not counted, and will not affect your statistics or CTR. Your banner will appear to you as part of the preview regardless of whether you yourself fit your target audience. If you'd like more information about this feature, check out the corresponding section of the Help guide.
Good luck with your campaigns, and please send us any feedback you may have!
