I used to be able to target zip codes in AdWords Keyword Planner.

 

Now I can't.

 

Can anyone confirm or deny this please?

Go To Targeting > hover on edit icon in places (united states will be default) > Advanced Search > bulk location

I know about that method because I have a list of local ZIP codes that I used to paste in there all the time.

Now when I go to do it it says it can't find the location, even though I know for a fact those ZIP codes exist in my area.

 

Please see attached screenshot.

Hi Andy, use the Radius Targeting option instead of the Bulk locations; add a small radius of 5mi around your Zip codes and you'll be able adding your locations, good luck.
