Reaching people in my country who are searching for a specific area.

Hello,

 

I'm trying to reach people who live in my country and are searching for a specific area. Currently I have the area targeted. I don't think adding my country to the target list will work, but excluding all other countries doesn't seem right either.

Hello;

We covered your question in an article on Geo-targeting:

I'm sorry but this doesn't really answer my question. I know how it works but not how to make it like I want.

Hello again;

If you target a region; You do not need to exclude all other regions outside the targeted region . They are excluded by default.

If I do that, will my ad show up when people are searching for hotel Netherlands? Because I only want to show it to people who want a hotel within the 15 mile radius.

@RemiN;

To my knowledge you cannot target that small radius in Europe.

 

Check this guide for Geo-targeting by regions in Europe;

I added the 15 miles in targets so it should work, I'm just wondering how to exclude the other countries without adding them all manually.

Hello again;

In the Netherlands the smallest area you can target is by city level, or by region. (And furthermore: These are not accurate.) As a small country as the Netherlands is, it seems to me that, still, a city radius is larger than 15 KM...

 

When you target a region, you do not need to exclude other regions in the country. They are excluded by default.

I don't think you understand me, let me try again.

 

I have the 15 Km targeted (if this doesn't work I'll change it later).

 

I want people who are looking for a hotel in the 15 Km to see my ad. But I only want people who are phisically in the Netherlands.

 

If I also add the Netherlands, people who are looking for a hotel outside the radius will see it too. If I don't add it, it's shown for the whole world.

 

I hope this clears things up.

There is some misunderstanding here...

 

>>"I want people who are looking for a hotel in the 15 Km to see my ad. But I only want people who are physically in the Netherlands.

 

  • The 15 Km circle - Is all  within the Netherlands?
  • If the answer is yes, then  in "advance targeting options" , check the following option: : "People in your targeted location"
