Question about Location Extensions

Top Contributor

It used to be the default that location extensions would show with ads for users who are within 20 miles from the location. Is that still true?  This help article states "If you enable location extension targeting, your campaign will target the radius that you specified around your current location extensions. Afterwards, each new location extension that you add will also be targeted, and each location extension that you remove will also be removed."  I don't see an option to specify a radius around an extension - is this just outdated?

Hi Joy,

I believe this is outdated now since it is using location of user now as primary signal.
