Dynamic Location Insertion

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I'm working on a campaign that targets services nationally (UK only) and need to be able to create an add title that looks something like this:

 

Breakdown Assistance in {LOCATION GOES HERE}, where the location in brackets is created dynamically according to the users search term. The website that this will be pointing at will be a national database and its important that the user is not limited to only seeing locations based on his/her IP but the actual Search Term entered.

 

I understand that the {KeyWordSmiley Frustratedearch} might do the job but I was hoping to make the ads more uniform in their appearance by only making the location the Dynamically created content. Looking through the forums the new location targeting that's linked to Google My Business (e.g. lb.city:london ) probably isn't going to work as it relies on the My Business account being optimised for a particular place which would mean thousands of entries. 

 

Thanks in advance

Sam

Hi Sam;

This is a nice question;

However, I don't think that you can dynamically Geo target based on the user's search intent (i.e. Based on the location name included in  the search query)

Hi Sam, 

 

It does not seem to be possible. As Dyanamic Keywords Insertion is not supported anymore, and Dynamic Keyword Insertion or Ad Customizers do not seem to address this particular scenario precisely. 

 

Thanks

OK, thanks guys. I was coming to the same conclusion as well, just hoping I'd missed something.

 

Thanks again

Sam
