Hi all,

 

I have one campaign running in 3 cities. Is there a way to know which cities are getting the most impressions or clicks? I want to know, for example, if I even need to show my ad in Chicago etc.

 

Thanks

Hi Hector,


Go to Dimensions > User Locations and you can see data based on where the person was when they made the search. To make it less granular, you can remove some columns like "Most specific location".

Do you know why I'm getting traces from locations such as Baja California Mexico and Australia even though If I've only targeted 3 cities --Chicago, Omaha, Des Moines?

Can you please explain why --if I geo targetted only three local locations-- my ad is showing in Brazil or Mexico in the first place?

Hi Hector,

 

The default settings allow for your ad to be shown anywhere in the world, as long as the search query suggests to Google that they are interested in the locations you specified. Usually that means including a place name.
