Hi all,

 

The advertisements set in google adwords target only HK and the Netherlands. But turn out I found audience from Saudi Arabia. Anyone has any idea? 

 

Thanks !

Hi

You have set targeting in AdWords as HK and Netherlands but your google analytics shows adwords traffic from Saudi Arabia. Is that correct assumption?

If yes:

1. In adwords there are 3 ways to target geo a. Users in your target location b. Users who are in target location or show interest in target location c. users who show interest in target location.


If you chose option b or c you may end up targeting users who are physically outside your target location.

Hope this helps

Hi theniks,

 

Thanks for your reply. but I have really targeted in my target location, I will just simply exclude Saudi Arabia then. May I also know where to set location of interest? Do you mean geo-modifying keywords?

 

Thanks.
