Can I ask you for a little clarification here, please.

Because adwords decides on many factors - where the person looking at your advertisement is, who they are, where they are, and what they're looking for on Search network.

Answering a few of these will give us a clue as to where the problems lie - and as always, opportunities lie in problems, but you do have to resolve them for yourself. I'm sorry not to have given the answer you needed.

Hi Pradeed Thomas,

Geo-targeting is based on the user's location, not the website's domain. You can also target buy language. Again, that's based on the user's language setting, not the website visited.

An exception to this is when you are using one of Google's properties, other than google.com. For example, if you search with google.fr, Google will assume you are interested in things in France, so you will get ads targeted at France. If you are actually in India, it will also show ads targeted at India.

Hope this helps.

Best of Luck!
