Hello, 

I have two parameters to run effective adwords campaign : the city (264 differents) and the activity (3 differents). 
The objective for me is too be really really close to the prospect so i would like to do ads like this : 
{activity} in {city}. 


Do I have to create 264 differents campaign with 3 differents ads groups ou 3 differrents campaign with 264 different ads groups ? Do you have another more effective / less time consuming solution ? 

Sorry for my english and thanks by advance. 

John

Several options:

My advice - use the AdWords API....

Another option, use the editor, copy the campaigns, and change the Geo targeting (location targeting is set at the campaign level)

If you keywords suit, use DKI (dynamic keyword insertion) for the initial ads.

 

Some people find Excel is good for a building accounts like this.

 

If you can't use zip codes / post codes, setting up the locations can be quite time consuming.
