We just hired someone to help with a new campaign. We were told the ads were going to be in search results ONLY for the area we are in.

 

When reviewing Analytics for the first week, we are seeing nearly 50% of click sources being from other cities, regions (states) and even countries. how can this be?

I assume that the advanced  location targeting was set to the defualt. Ask to change it to "people in the targeted location only"
