Hi Community,

 

I need to target my Ad-words to Iran, but cannot choose Iran as my target audience, how to optimize my campaign for Iranian Google searches?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi David,

 

Unfortunately you cannot target Iran as a country inside Google AdWords. It's been a sensitive and critical issue since long due to various legal and other restrictions. You will find lot of threads around this issue in the past as well. Can't comment much as it goes beyond AdWords.

Hi,

You can't choose Iran as a country in AdWords yet, but since Persian language is mostly spoken in Iran, you can use Persian keywords with phrase match and so most of your clicks would be from Iran.

Never can't select Iran as a country in your targeting location yet, but you can target Farsi like Arabic alphabet in your, you can use Persian languages on the Search Network keywords and so most of who search by Arabic alphabet with same keywords in camp can earn best CTR on Persian keywords.
 
 
Good luck

Hi David,

unfortumatly iran is limited in target countries but depending on your segment and product or service I recommend LinkedIn as usage rate is considerable in Iran .
