    Region specific adgroups


    Ok Google says you can do this but so far I can't figure out how.

    I need to have region specific ad groups within a campaign. Anyone know how I can do this? Basically I need one ad group in a campaign targeted for CA, then another ad group in the same campaign targeted for NY.

    This is the E-mail I got from google:

    Thank you for writing in. I understand that you would like us to remove the campaign limit from the account *******, as you are targeting several regions. I do appreciate your interest in our program, however, I am afraid we are unable to increase the campaign limit at this point in time. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you.

    Instead, we suggest you include all the your geo targets within one or two campaigns and have region based Ad Groups. For example, include all specific regions that you would like to target within US in one campaign and within this campaign you may choose to have region specific ad groups. This way you can structure your AdWords account well and it becomes easy
    for you to navigate through your AdWords account.

    I just can't figure out how to geo target specific ad groups within one campaign.. =/

    Hi PoiZster,

    I'm pretty sure you cannot geo-target in ad groups like you can at the campaign level.

    You can however use Geo-target keywords and target you ad groups this way. i.e. "music lessons albany ny"

    If you find certain locations are particularly good you can then setup a geo targeted campaign just for those top locations.

    That campaign number limit is a real bummer.
