Geo Targets Not Showing Up On Map

Good Morning Advertiser Community!

 

I am in the process of creating a new campaign - and I have added 457 zip codes to my geo target list. That being said, quite a few of the zips I'm targeting in this campaign - aren't showing up on the map to let me know I'm targeting them - for instance, see the screenshot below:

This isn't just happening within this campaign either - my other campaigns which are targeting over 300 zip codes as well is running into the same issue. I can see that the zips are added to the campaign - however, the map doesn't reflect those targets. Is this pretty typical when targeting locations in bulk? I can add the particular zips in question to a seperate campaign and then show up - but once I add them to a campaign with a bunch of other zips already added - they aren't appearing. 

 

Will my ads still run in the locations even though they're not being reflected on the map? I know there is a cap of 1,000 locations to target in bulk - but again, I'm only targeting 457 and am not close to that 1,000 number.

Hello, even though you are not close to the official limit, you have exceeded the limit that will show on the map you are referencing.  I can't remember what that number is, but it's nothing to worry about. Just think of it as a technical glitch.

 

If it's in your target list, your ads will be served for appropriate queries in that area.
