So let’s break this down…
Way Number #1

Last year (2019) FB took away the capability to search by keywords such long tail or even most short tail keywords. If you don’t know what long tail and short tail keywords are, they’re just the difference between 3-4 words or more in your searches.
For example, a sentence containing more than 4 words is considered a long tail keyword. Between 1 to 3 words would be a short tail keyword.
But you can do a search on there for groups. You would search for groups in your niche. When you find those groups you will be able to see if they have any active ads running currently and also see those that have run previously.
You will be able to see the links attached to the ads and go to where they lead to. That’s about the amount of details you get for this free method.
But what you can do is take from they’re ads and model your’s after theirs. You can tell how long the ads have been running by scrolling down the page also. Looking only at the active ads, you can tell if they’ve been running those for a long time, it’s a good indication that they’re very successful ads.
Find one you like and use the ideas you get from it to model your’s after it. Of course the more time you spend researching these out, the more ideas you get to model your’s after.
That’s about it for Facebook Ads Library.
It’s an effective way to spy on Facebook ads. But there’s another way too…
