How can i create an ad group to target specific city ?

I read this paragraph in GCP 

 

"Local businesses such as furniture stores, car dealerships may create a campaign for each region, and within each campaign, create a different ad group for each city or metropolitan area they cover. If you're running a promotion in a specific city, you might create a campaign targeting that city only."

 

I can't target specific location In my AdGroup setting, 

they notify me to change the all camapign setting to target language or location ...

 

So, How can i create an ad group to target specific city ?

Hello mdwahaab

Correct;

As quoted ("If you're running a promotion in a specific city, you might create a campaign targeting that city only")  - Geo- targeting setting is at a campaign level; (not at ad-group level)

You are correct; this is an erratum.

This language might be misleading".. and within each campaign, create a different ad group for each city or metropolitan area they cover"

 

It should be rephrased as: "..and within each campaign, create an ad group /ad groups for The city or metropolitan targeted".

 

I will refer the erratum to Google

Yeah, when studying the support materials I also understood that you could organize your account as in the following example:

 

  • Account: Multinational
  • Campaign: France
  • Ad Group: Paris

But when you play around with the platform you soon realize you can't set Location Settings at an Ad Group Level.

 

"Local businesses such as furniture stores, real estate developers, or car dealerships may create a campaign for each region, and within each campaign, create a different ad group for each city or metropolitan area they cover. If you're running a promotion in a specific city, you might create a campaign targeting that city only."

 

Here's how I would rephrase it:

 

"Local businesses such as furniture stores, real estate developers, or car dealerships may create a campaign for each region (city or metropolitan area), and within each campaign, create one or more ad groups which will contain ads that will be targeted according to the campaign's location settings. If you're running a promotion in a specific city, you might create a campaign targeting that city only."
