The ad will still keep the original date that you placed the ad. You'll know indirectly when the renewal emails stop coming. In spite of what it might say on-screen, renewals do not last the term of the original ad; they last only 14-15 days.
In my case (I use Chrome, by the way), the link I get isn't live, I have to copy and paste the link into another browser window then press enter.
I then get a message saying that the ad has been renewed. If I don't do anything when I get the first ad, it repeats until either the item expires, or I renew.
