How ad extensions work
AdWords shows one or more extensions with your ad when it calculates that the extension will improve your performance, and when your Ad Rank is high enough for it to appear. Adding an extension won’t guarantee that it will show with your ad, but you can keep track of when your extensions are appearing on the Ad extensions tab. Since AdWords requires a minimum Ad Rank before showing extensions, you may need to increase your bid or your ad quality in order for your extensions to show.
