Most people in China are using a VPN to get past the Great Firewall, how does this impact your Google Adwords and its targeting? Most foreigners are still using Google through a VPN, since companies like Astrill have 40 different server locations what would be the best to way to reach them via Adwords? Target all countries, seems abit crazy...

Hi Brian,

 

Can you elaborate more on your question here? What exactly are your target audiences and are you looking to promote some service or product using AdWords?

Hi,

As Pankaj says if you can elaborate the question about adword we may able to help you more. But answer for your initial question about how VPN affect adwords is, google identify VPN generated IP address as a different country from China.

So at the moment there is no way to target only the users who use VPN from China as an target audience for adwords
