Location bid adjustment for 1 country

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a campaign for all countries, but I want to increase the bids for one specific country.  I don't think this is possible.  As soon as I add a country, all other countries are excluded.  Do I have to create 2 almost identical campaigns?

Hello there;

If you upgraded to enhanced campaigns, you can do that using location bid adjustments;;

It is already an enhanced campaign and I know how to add a country and a bid adjustment, but as soon as I do, all other countries are excluded.  I've been told privately that it's not possible and I would have to create 2 campaigns which seems silly to me.  There should be a country called "All Countries" or similar.  I suppose I could add every country in the world to the listif I had a list of every country.

NO;

This should work;

Something in your setting is wrong;

Follow the detailed instructions in the following link, or on Jon's article (my first reply);

Ok, I'm following the instructions, except I have no locations loaded so I cannot add a bid adjustment to any location.  It currently says "Showing ads in all countries and territories".

 

The instructions don't mention to add a location for the country I want to increase the bids.  When I add a country, I no longer see "Showing ads in all countries and territories", only the 1 country I have added appears.  I'm pretty sure if I save these changes, my ads will only be seen in this one country.

 

If you are saying that is incorrect then I'll try it, but I don't want to miss out on ads not appearing in other countries for too long.   If you can guarantee I am incorrect then I'll try and let you know.

I'm 99.9% sure it will limit impressions to that 1 country only.  what I have done is downloaded all the location data from Google and extracted all the countries and added them to the list.  207 from memory.  So now I can add a percentage to the bids for one country.

Are you Geo-targeting 207 countries in one language and one landing page ....?

Yes we are.  If anyone understands the ad in English then they are welcome to click on it.  We get customers from all over the world in non-native English speaking countries, but these customers are either originally from English speaking countries or know enough English to get by.
