I want to display ads in the US in daytime, I am based in India.

When I select the time from my Adwords account as it is in the night as per the Indian time zone, i receives a message saying "End time is earlier than start time.", How I can target the ads in US in daytime from my Indian time zone account.

Also, what I have to do, If i want to run the campaigns in all 4 time zones in US.

Please help as soon as possible,

Hello ibabacamp; welcome;

 

Indeed, if you run global campaigns, you need to set a world clock widget on your desktop, to find out time zones around the world ...Smiley Happy

The time zone and currency are set per  AdWords account.  These are the only two parameters you set "account wide", and cannot be changed.

 

When you set a global campaign, you set the time based on your account tine zone. If the time difference between the East Coast of the US and India is 10.5 hrs, then  a campaign in NYC, that starts at 9 am Eastern, will be set on your AdWords account to start at 7.30 pm India time

Confusing ...I know...Hence, I suggested to put a world time widget on your desktop (like stock traders do...)

When setting a campaign for a different time zone, I open a widget on my desktop, showing my local time, and the time in the other location. (I do not do calculations of GMT+- ...I get confused)
