I'm an online advertiser. I have a few questions; (1) How do I change, correct or update my ad location. More specifically, how can I correct my ad location to show as "online site". (2) how do I set my audience to be North America, since that is our main ad audiences target.

Hello and welcome to the AdWords Community! I'm not sure that I 100% understand your question, but I'll do my best to answer; if my answer doesn't suffice, feel free to clarify your question -
With Google AdWords, you have the ability to select the geographic location where your Ads are served under Campaign Settings. You can pick an entire country, just a state/province, just a city, or a radius around a certain zip code. To target just North America,
1. Log into your AdWords Account
2. Click on your Campaign
3. Click on the Settings tab
4. Scroll down to the Locations section (below Devices)
5. Click Edit
6. Now you can just select the countries in North America

Great! now this makes it easier. your answer is very helpful. My other question was that, our website is an online business, so what can I do to have the business location be stated as just "online site" in place of the city & province.
Thank you

To make sure that searchers know you're an online business only, consider writing "Buy Online" or something along those lines in your Ad Copy.
