For example, if a person in UAE keys in software training , I would like my ad to appear , I wouldn't want it appearing if someone from UK keyed it in .

Hi @Rhea J,

 

If you set up location targeting and exclusions, you should be fine.

 

Next, add in Advanced Location Options so that you change the default from People in, searching for, or who show interest in your targeted location... to: People in your targeted location... and change exclude from default to: People in your excluded location. Note: Your advanced location options apply to ads on both the Search Network and the Google Display Network.

 

All the Best,

 

James

Hi @Rhea J, though the answer to you query has already been provided to you by @James_Clemens to restrict your ads to the users physically located in your targeted locations.

 

To cross check it, use the ad preview tool and search with your keywords by selecting a different location other than your targeting location.
