Can someone verify that bulk locations is available in settings>locations?

I've been trying to add multiple location exclusions via bulk locations as described here:

http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1722043

 

I cannot find it though.

 

Settings tab>locations>bulk locations.

 

Can someone verify this?

 

Thanks

Hello Getit,

 

The article you mentioed in post is old one, now Location targeting interface has been changed in Adwords. I will suggest you to read the http://adwords.blogspot.in/2011/10/location-targeting-gets-makeover.html blog post to understand what changes has been made in new location targeting and how does it work.

Hi Getit,

 

Dinesh is right, I also think the article is not current.  I was exploring the new zip code targeting changes and was looking for a 'Bulk Upload" option.  I still do not have one but others have reported otherwise.

 

You can check out this thread for yourself:

Thanks for your replies Dinesh and Bossman! I checked out the thread and it looks like they are going through adjustments.

 

From that thread:

 

The bulk feature is available again through the online interface.  Under Locations, Advanced Search - next to Radius Targeting is now "Bulk Locations"

 

It is not there for me. I put in some feedback to see whats going on. Interestingly enough the new "location options advanced" allows for perfect targeting by location.

 

Explained very very well here:
