I have multiple locations. Will the location shown be the closest location to the IP address location, the setting of the computer or the location the searcher specified in the search query?
Thanks for your Post! Yes, we use IP addresses and it will show the closest location to the IP address. I’ve added a link for you. Please if you have a more specific question let me know.

Remember the Desktop is an offline version, so it only changes what changes YOU make during a Desktop session. It’s best to either work in the Desktop or the UI not both at the same time. Bottom line, if you don’t change the targeting in the Desktop it won’t change the UI. It’s best to refresh the Desktop with the UI’s current information every time you open it and do work. Then as you sync, the only information that’s changed in the UI are the changes you made in Desktop.
Hi Bea and Casey Carpenter,
You can set an ad group setting for multiple cities in the U.S. Example. If your locations are in Tampa, Phoenix and Boise set ad groups for each specific location and geo target the locations. Or. Set location extensions and target the U.S. the IP addresses will give your customers the appropriate locations. Either way works fine. In each case ad Center looks at the IP addresses within the parameters set and delivers the appropriate response.
I also have this same question in regards to location extensions. For example, I may target the entire US and have multiple locations in various states. Will the ad extensions only be shown to the appropriate IP addresses based on location? (This is the way Awords handles them)
Hey John, I dont see anything specific mentioned in the link you provided in regards to multiple location extensions within the same campaign and how they are served.
does the geo targeting work the same way? Will adcenter look at the IP address or setting of the computer to determine the location of the searcher?
was the answer about the desktop tool the answer to my other question about tablet targeting?
