Just wondering about the adwords keyword tool results. There are Global and Local results - is it country level local, province, or city?

Hi, Bluebeep.

 

If you hover over the "?" circle next to the table header "Local Monthly Searches", you'll see this:

 


Local Monthly Searches

If you specified a country or language for your search, this is the approximate 12-month average number of user queries for the keyword for those countries and languages. It's specific to your Keyword Match Type selection. Learn more

 

Note: if you've selected multiple countries or a location that isn't a country (like a city, state, or region), we won't show local search volume stats.


Therefore it's "Country".

Hello Bluebeep,

 

On the Keyword Tool you have the option to expand the Locations and languages section below the keyword fields. Selecting a country from here determines your Local Monthly Searches while the Global Local Searches are naturally worldwide.

Hi dtarver, local is countrywise not citywise..

 

If you are referring it to adding location radious on Adwords, then it can be any radius
