I would like to know about  Domain extension flexibility in PPC?

 

If i have already a uk domain  or any other extension domains and i want to use in google.com then will my ads show in google.com ? 

 

Do you thing a UK Domain can rank in google.com ?  or much better in google.co.uk?

The extension itself does not come into the equation when Google is figuring out which ads to display... a searcher runs their search and it is your keywords, your bid, your quality score and a bunch of other internal AdWords factors that determine your position in the auction and, thereby, the results - not the extension.

There is one point... a searcher who is, for example, in the UK may be more likely to click on an ad which is for a .co.uk result rather than, say, a .com.au result - simply because it makes more sense to them. That could be a factor... and, of course, if there are enough of these then this will impact on your CTR, which could affect your QS, which could affect... and so on - but this is not determined by the internal workings of Adwords.

Hi,

Off course you can use other domain in Google.com. as other member mentioned here.

You can include or exclude audience from uk when you target in google.com. People can search your domain if you don't select the option "People in my targeted location" from Location options (Advance) in campaign setting.

get more info from this article - https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722038?ctx=tltp

Thanks
