difference in countries

 3:22 am on Sep 27, 2005 (gmt 0)

hi, I like to ask anyone out there whether: I am staying in singapore, but I want to display U.S. adsense ads. If I were to host my domain with a U.S. hosting company, will that do the job?

hi thecross5

your ads are usually geotargetted anyway

in other words visitors to your site in the US see US ads, visitors in the UK see UK ads, etc

hope this helps

If someone in the US sees your site they will see US ads but if the site is about Singapore then likely the ads will be too. (ever the optimist!)

If someone in Singapore sees your site they will see Singapore ads but if the topic is US they will see US ads.

Hope this helps!

As mentioned, AdSense uses geotargeting to display ads to your users. This means ads are targeted by IP address to the location of your users.

So, if I look at your site from here in Mountain View, California, I'll see ads targeted to U.S. users. If your users in Singapore look at the same page, they'll see ads targeted to a Singaporean audience.

AdWords advertisers can choose which countries they'd like to target with their ads. Therefore, you may see U.S. advertisers targeting ads to your users in Singapore.

If you'd like to see which ads your users in other countries are seeing, you can download the Google AdSense preview tool which will allow you to do this:


Hope that helps,

Is that a way to see what ads appear for which countries? I mean, if I am creating a website targeting UK visitors, I do like to know what ads they are seeing on my site and I am certainly not planing to flight over there to check out.
