Location Targeting

So I'm looking to start a display network campaign, but just need to clarify how targetting works.

I want my display ads to show on any website, but targets people surfing the net from say Country A.

For example if say someone lived in Country A, and surfed a popular global cooking/sports/outdoor website, my ad could possibly show to that particular person in Country A. 

Last time I tried this, the automatic placement only targetted local websites, not overseas ones.

Hi

Maybe last time you tried the websites where your ads were eligible to show did not have any overseas visitors?

What you describe is correct. If you only target a specific country, only visitors residing (or at least their IP adress) in that country will see your ad

Hi David,

My display ads were only placed on local websites. I want them placed on any global website, but I need them to display only to people from one country.

Need it to target locals but not be placed on local websites.

Hello there;

Geo targeting is based on user's location - irrelevant the to website hosting location
