Suppose if I am targeting Doctors marketing keyword in the US. And I also want  to target location-based keywords like "Doctors Makreting NYC etc.


How the ad would be shown? Should I create separate campaign for location based keywords or should I suffix 'NYC'with "doctors marketing"keyword?

Yes, you will want to create two separate campaigns, with the same keywords but with different location targeting.

That way, you will reach the same audience, but in the specific area/location that you want. Smiley Happy

"NYC Targeted Campaign" > In Locations target New York city, > add "doctors marketing" as a keyword in your specified ad group.

Hi Ayush,

First of all, i would suggest that if you have a adwords campaign running at the moment, you should look into the geographic report for your account and check which particular location is doing well for you in terms of KPI's - Clicks, Conversions, etc.

Once you have an idea of the most profitable locations you can use the same and create a new campaign consisting of locations specific keywords in individual adgroups. This way you know you are working with the best performing locations & themes at the same time.

You may have to look into your SQR's to ensure that there is no cross triggering of ads occurring for this campaign.

Hope this helps.
