Ad words and Diagnosis

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Under this heading on my account, I need to know what location I should edit in.  Should I enter in my location or the location of where I am trying to advertise.  Ex: I live in DC but I'm trying to draw traffic to LA.

 

Secondly, My ad is not showing due to adwords or low bid.  I just increased my bid but still not showing.  What to do?  Please advise.

 

Thanks

Hi AJGROUP,

 

Are you using the Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool? Sounds like it.

 

In the location field on that page, you should set your location to somwhere within the area geo-targeted by your campaign if you wish to see your ad.

 

Ads are shown according to AdRank. AdRank = QS * Max CPC bid. If you have a low QS on your keywords, you will need to bid higher to get your ad to show for those keywords. On the other hand, if you have a low QS on your keywords you might consider trying different keywords.

 

Best of Luck!
