Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I am from China, I am setting up a campaign targeting most of the countries, including U.S, UK, CANADA, GERMANY, Japan, korea, etc. And I selectively check those countries on the location setting.
Yesterday when I checked with my friend in Japan, she said she can see the AD there. I read a post here on WebmasterWorld that you can check the ad display by simply adding "&gl=us"(without the quote) onto the URL, but when I add""&gl=us", "&gl=uk", "&gl=de", I can't find my AD there(which located I have checked). but I do found my ad when I add ""&gl=jp", "&gl=kr"(korea).
Any one have that problem before? I want my ad to display in U.S and EU, but it just didn't display there. How I can solve this problem?
Just now I checked all the location on google geo setting, but still, my ad doesn't show up in U.S, UK, ETC.
Any help and advice will be highly appreciated. Thanks,
AWA, I'd be glad if you could also go through the same link and find me a solution!
Anyone has any idea? Ironically, I am mainly targeting the English-speaking countries, but my AD only appear in non english speaking countries.
The preview tool is imperfect and shows only a small sample.
You basically have to rely on Google's word when they say they are displaying the ad in your target country.. Clicks, queries and business generation is all the proof you will be able to get.
I have asked 2 of my friends in U.S to search my key words on google, ending up I have one ad on page 4 and one ad on page 2. I guess it is just because tough competition on those key words in english-speaking countries. In non English-speaking countries, the ad rank well in first page.
I raise the bid to 1.5$, I instantly become spot 1 on page 1 in UK, and also make to the first page in U.S.
I guess the ad preview tool just show the first page ad.
Thanks MadeWillis for the nice offer, I have sent you a sticky mail. Green_Grass, I totally agree with you. We need another search engine to compete with google.
Any idea on the tracking?
