I want to have a Canadian account and a US account leading to the same domain. Will this be allowed?

Hi @Sarah B,

 

You can target multiple geographic locations in different campaigns.

 

More than 1 AdWords account to advertise a single domain is a policy violation known as Gaining unfair advantage(double serving).

Hello, Sarah. Before launching in a complex explanation, let me ask you one quick question: why do you need two AdWords accounts? Do you need two different account managers, working separately or do you need separate invoicing per region?

Hi @AdWiser, It would be yes to both questions. We have a business manager in the US who manages the US portfolio and is billed, but in Canada we use an agency and they get billed. We are designing the websites to be one site on the same domain but want to have the separate accounts - one for each country. If it is possible and there is a way to do this, I would love the feedback/direction.

Hi, Sarah.

 

In this case I'd say you can go ahead and use two accounts targeting the same website. One account for Canada, one for US, each with its own manager and its own geo-targeting.

 

Since it's the same site we're talking about, even if you'd use two accounts targeting the same region, the system would only show one ad per domain, so it wouldn't double serve. Two different websites for the same business, from two accounts, that's a different story, something called nowadays "gaining an unfair advantage".

 

Just in case, I'd contact support as well and let them know my intentions as your setup is not very common.

 

Hope it helps.

I'm happy to hear that, Sarah. As for contacting them, I'd use any of the two accounts (or another one if you don't have access to them) and click on the top right. I'm on mobile now and can't provide you with a specific link.
