How do I target Windows 8 tablet users only?

Hi,

 

How do I setup an AdWord campaign to target only Windows 8 tablets? I am a Windows 8 developer and want to advertise my app. I see this can be done for some/most of the other platforms, but not Windows 8..?

 

Regards,

 

Alistair

Hi, you should select new campaign, display only, and then advanced mobile and tablet options.
There you choose Window phone under operating systems, version 8 and above..
That should be good.
Regards.

Hi Drazen,

I appreciate your response. However, I'm after Windows 8 tablets, and not Windows Phone. Any ideas?

Regards,

Alistair

Yes, you should target screen size of device bigger than mobile phone. If you can't find the option, when I came up to computer I'll send you where it is.

Hi,
I mixed it up.. With mine selection you select both Windows 8 tablets and mobiles as desired targets. And if you want to target tablets only you should make change mobile bid -100%.
This is workaround, because google removed options to target tablets only..

Drazen,

Are you able to describe a bit more? I don't think there is an option for Windows 8 tablets..

Thanks for helping!

Regards

There is no option to target windows 8 , or the screen size , or just tablets.

Thanks.

So I then have no real option to advertise my Windows 8 app? Other than a scatter gun approach to every OS, where probably only 1% are using Windows 8 tablets?

AdWords allows targeting for the major 2 mobile / tablet operating systems. You are correct, windows runs on tablets and mobiles for 1 - 1.5 % of devices :
