Targeting Geographical Places of Interest

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I want to advertise a place in Seoul, Korea, to audiences located in South East Asia.

I've set up campaigns for each targeted country separately.


I want to target people in these countries, that are specifically interested in such places that are located in Korea, not their own country.


Similarly I want to advertise this place to English-speaking foreigners currently living in South Korea.


Does this mean I need to include the word 'seoul' and 'korea' for all my keywords, or is there some other setting I am not aware of?


Advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

@Saemmul S;

In the advanced location targeting options, choose:

  • People searching for, or who show interest in your targeted location

The ad will be shown to users showing interest in this location.  (However, this could be also users in Korea unless you exclude Korea)
