Hi there,

Time zones are set at account level, so if your 2 different locations are in different timezones you would have to create 2 different campaigns with individual ad scehdules.

For example if you wanted your ads to be 9-5, and you set the time zone to UK, then for that campaign you would set it to be 9-5. But if the second campaign was for France, where you also wanted it to be 9-5 in FRENCH time, you would have to set it to 8-4 UK time, as France are one hour ahead.

To set an ad schedule just go to campaigns settings > ad schedule and follow the prompts from there.

Does that help?

Just to add to Jack's reply - bear in mind that the time is set at your end of things - not at the visitor end.

It is easy (and wrong) to assume that if I set my ads to appear between 9am to 5pm that a visitor will see ads between 9am and 5pm their time - this is not the case... if your campaign is set for 9am London and targets NYC - then your ads will be seen at 4am in NYC.

As Jack rightly points out - to target different time zones you need to set up separate campaigns. simplest way to do this is to use AdWords Editor - or the recently introduced copy/paste function right in the AdWords interface - remembering to adjust your daily budget to split the spend between the two.

Guys,

I really appreciate your feedback. So it means that targeting different time zones through single campaign is very difficult.

That's right Kapil, and you're welcome.

Best to keep different locations in different campaigns.
