Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello:

I am trying to use location targeting by zip code in Philadelphia, PA.  Zip codes 19102 & 19109 which are in the heart of Center City, Philadelphia, are showing as "could not be matched."

Hi @Orange Line M,

 

Well - the new UI appears to have lost a few of the location selection features I was going to suggest to you.  You may need to make sure you're in the old UI for this.  

 

Here is what the old UI looks like, you can choose 'Center City, Philly' as your primary target and then view 'nearby' targeting options by zip, neighborhood etc...this should give you the level of detail needed to isolate your primary geographic location. Each location can be targeted or excluded right from the map, don't forget to save!

The new UI seems to have left most of this functionality behind. #downgrade

Hope this helps!
