Hi everyone,

I have been a silent observer / reader of these forums for a while now, but this is actually my first post.

So here's my question:
I'm doing a google adwords campaign. The campaign currently runs well in my home country, but i'd like to expand to other markets worldwide.
Where do i start?

Should i set up a new campaign for each country i'm marketing to, or should i set up a new campaign for each language?

How could i check who is bidding on what keyword in every other market? i figured google only displays ads aimed at my country specifically or globally (could you do that?)

If this subject has been covered in this forum before - please do point out the thread. I'll appreciate any tips or insight you guys may have....!

Thanks in advance

Google AdWords keyword tool is usually the only non-English keyword tool available out there for other countries.

Another less scientific, but quantitative research method would be to visit forums and blogs to determine what terminology they use to refer to the products/services you are trying to promote.

How to see google ads that are displayed in other countries? There is a code in the google search query that specifies the country. So if you are in the US, you have a code like


If you replace the "gl=US" with "gl=UK" you get the results in UK. at least this is roughly how it seems to work ...

i find that google's tools for this are quite misleading! when i use the tool to check something a get a certain set of results, and when i use a proxy i get a completely different set! i'm not sure why goggle are misleading their advertisers like this, but their tool is not good enough for global advertisement research, not accurate enough, and even if it is - than it's relevant ONLY for google!

there are many advertising networks in the world that serve ads according to the user's geographical location - sometime i try to visit a landing page and get an alert like "this offer is not intended for pipl from your country"...

i'm looking for a way to go around it... there must be a simple way for me to conceal myself as a visitor from a different geography

any help will be appreciated!
