I need the adwords bundles regions list in a text file, how can I get this?

I desperately need the bundled regions lists Google used to have...where can I get that list? Any site? Anywhere? It's just gone from Adwords and everything needs to be inputed manually, what a pain!


I know that someone at Google has that list, it's not like it just got deleted!

Hello xuzo; Welcome ;

I figure that your question is "how to target d a few regions / countries in one click?"

That can be easily done using the Geo-targeting tool. Follow the technical instructions in the help forum.

HI Moshe,


Actually no, not like that.


I'm looking for the Google list of bundles they used to have, like Western Europe, S Asia and so on.


Now THAT was one click!


I need lists of countries per bundle, the only person who would have this would either be a webmaster that fetched somehow or a Google employee...Smiley Wink

Hi Xuzo,


As you are also aware Location Targeting was recently upgraded and the feature you're missing was retired. The blog post you referred to indicates that some people out there are creating replacement scripts.


I also liked bundles of countries and don't think it was a good step to retire them.

Hi Lakatos


From what I can see, Location Targeting was downgraded, not upgraded! Smiley Frustrated


There must be some way of selecting continents easily, either in the AdWords UI or in AdWords Editor? My clients are constantly asking for campaigns to be run "across Europe", for example. Surely we don't have to option-click on 50 countries from a list every time that happens?

Will have tool to do that by late July 2012

Hi Chris,


I'll have a tool to do just that by late July early August 2012. Anybody interested please PM or email me (xuzo (@) ), I want to know what the demand for this is to know how intricate I should make this Google adwords bundle tool, it will be available for download over here:


But still, I have to organize the countries according to my estimation, I wish I had the original list....

Looks like there is some new stuff if you pretend you are an adwords API developer. Has some text files you can download the way you want and an older version.

I need the adwords bundles regions list in a text file, how can I get this?

Ok, I found the list in 2017...I will build a script shorty for it, link to the page where the script will be available for download is:


If anybody else interested in this feature let me know and I will develop it.
