Remarketing and Location settings

If I have a remarketing campaign, will my location settings be completely disregarded? Is it possible to target a specif audience list and then limit that audience to a specific location?


I am asking this because i am noticing that i get many impressions for countries that I do not target in my re marketing campaigns.

Hi Steve

Yes, location targeting will work with Re-marketing campaign. In order to get traffic from that region only, change your location advanced setting to "People in may targeted location only" option.

Hope this helps!

Hi Steve,


This is very much possible by changing your Advanced location setting to "People in my targeted Locations", as suggested by Abhishek. This will essentially limit your targeting to the locations is your priority.


The reason why you are recording impressions from locations that are not your priority is because your targeting is not limited to just one or two locations and because there are users who are part of your remarketing list that do not reside in your priority locations.


Do give this setting change a try and add your location to the remarketing campaign to see if indeed this helps.


Hope this helps.
