Hi,

 

You can limit your advertisement by targeting a specific location. Please find below the link for more information.

If the name of your target location is not there in the list, then you can target based on a radius limit. All informations are provided in the link given above.

The radius targeting is not as sensitive as the old "draw a polygon" used to be (I miss that!) and sometimes I find it useful to target three or four smaller areas along a highway strip for example, rather than widen the radius as this can often take in areas I actually don't want. Simply use the add button to add more areas to the inclusion zone.
