Location targeting in Greece other than geomodified keywords?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

Since IP-targeting is not available in Greece, I still would like to target on location. I understand that I can use geomodified kw's (match on intent, not on IP address), BUT... I also would like to be able to target a specific area without explicitly mentioning the city. 

 

Question: how can I target a user in the surroundings of for instance Athens, who searches on "pizza" (or better maybe "moussaka" ;-) without the geomodifier "Athens" in the search query???

 

Is is possible and if so, how?

 

Very many thanks for your reply, Maron Dijkslag (Matchcraft)

Hi Maron,

 

I was going through this detailed doc (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoXclFw9v2cWdEtuZUJPY1dhR0RmQ2tvZkxPeVMxT1E#gid=0) containing list of all the countries and saw that Greece only has the option to be targeted at country level only.

 

Hence, I am afraid but I think the only way out would be to identify the regional keywords and try to use them if possible.

 

There might be changes in near future where you might be able to opt in for other localized targeting possiblities for Greece like city level, region level, state level etc...

Hello Maron,

For Pizza business, the best way to target your customers is using "Radius Targeting" in camapign setting.

 

Go to the campaign setting > Location > Edit > Advanced Search.

 

Now on the top select Radius Targeting. In the search box type "Athens" select the redius of you choice and search.

On the left side you will see the location under a circle. If this is the correct one click ADD and then Save.

 

You are done here!! Smiley Happy

Hi Rohit,

Thanks for your reply. But the problem is that radius targeting in Greece has no use, because it's based on IP-address and IP-targeting is not possible in Greece. IP addresses are not related to a location and targeting in Google is only possible on country level :-(
