Can't target a specific region - Bratislava

Hi,

I've created a campaign and I'm trying to target a specific region - Bratislava (Slovakia), but it won't let me select it. Any idea why? It's been like this for a few months, thought it could have been a bug but maybe it's just not possible for all regions?


Thanks for any help.

Hello,

 

Unfortunately , in AdWords Slovakia can be geo targeted only at Country level. This poses a problem when the delivery of services or goods can be provided only in a specific city.

 

To verify targeting in each country, use this table :

 

https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/appendix/geotargeting

 

When you type "sk" in the country code text box, the "target type" appears to be "country".
