Hi Greg,

Great question!

At this time you can only target ad location at the campaign level. Hopefully with the transition to the new enhanced campaigns they might implement this at the adgroup level. I would suggest doing the following:

Add your existing adgroups into a NEW campaign and this can be done quick and easily using AdWords Express. Then you can set new location targeting. You can also create a shared budget between the two campaigns or separate budgets.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you run into any problems or have any further questions.

Best,

Stefan Martinez

Hello;
Geo targeting is set at the campaign level; However, you can adjust your bids for specific  locations within the targeted location;

My concern is creating another campaign will not allow me to transfer the quality score and other statistics. Is it possible to transfer all of this data to my new campaign?

Hello again;

I wouldn't worry much about the initial QS, since until CTR "kicks in" to affect your real time QS ((1000 impressions for a new KW) - the initial  QS is based on your account history, and other advertisers average QS for a given KW.

Has Google allowed this to be done yet?
