Location Targeting

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have my ads target in the US. An associate used google from other countries (google.fr ...) to pull up my ads suggesting my targeting was wrong. II think that if targeting users in US then what ever Google search you used would be irrelvant because location would be the targeting factor, would that be a correct assumption?

Hi Mark,

 

AdWords have different signals in a way how your ads are targeted to different audiences online. There is a possiblity that if someone outside your targeted location is looking for a service/product which you are advertising, then that user might see your ad.

 

It's only if you use advanced location targeting settings, that you can restrict the users based on either their physical location or the users searching for or viewing pages about your targeted location. You can read more on how your ads are matched to geographic location here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2453995?hl=en

 

Advanced Location options are described here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722038
