At a same time, advertisers are able to add more than 1000 postal codes for ZIP code targeting. They can also view campaign performance stats by ZIP code. Location Insertion also allow advertisers to make a single ad for all locations and Adwords will then also insert the city name, phone number, postal code when the ad is displayed.

Location insertion will also work even after other extensions take priority over your location extensions. Now, around its advanced location targeting, Google has also changed the wording in response to travel advertisers. After the change, people are able to target location to show ads to people in that location, it doesn’t matter what their search query seems to indicate.

Now on the Google Display Network, the company is using extra signals and before the likely physical location of the user was utilized in targeting. At the content of the page, Google will also look when it seems to be tied to a certain location and target ads. The main default is to show ads to people “in” or “viewing pages about” the targeted before, but advertisers may change this setting.
