Google Testing New AdWords Preview Tool

I reported this morning via a WebmasterWorld thread that Google is testing a new AdWords Preview Tool at this URL.

I do not believe Google has announced this new version yet, but from what I can see there are a few minot functional changes. Plus the user interface looks a bit cleaner. Here are before and after images:

The last time Google redesigned the preview tool was in July 2007 and the tool itself was launched in September 2006.

    The new version, Google removes coordinates out from the ad preview tool , This is not good as we can’t preview the ads in local. Let say you target 20 miles in the specific radius , you will not allow to do so. I often use that for my local business clients.

    I’m with you nuttakorn – this would stink… I use it all day long.
