So, today I’m going to show you how to set locations in AdWords and how to set bid adjustments based on data you’ve received. First, you’ll select the campaign you want. Then you will go in and select locations. You’re going to want to go up here and hit the geographic report. Since we’re targeting the United States, I’ll just select that. You can select the region, state, Nielsen regions, congressional district, county, municipality, city, postal code airport, borough, city region, neighborhood, university, and district. I’m going to select the state. Select all. I’m going to add target and set bid adjustments, but I’m not going to actually set the bid adjustment just yet. Save. Now, I’ll see that I have all of these targeted now, and I can set bid adjustments based on the data. I have this collum set to cost per conversion. I want the highest cost per conversion so I can set a bid adjustment based on “that’s too high for me.” Really, in this campaign, it’s not too high for me. But, since it’s significantly higher in Wisconson, I think I can pay less for that and I’m going to decrease by 5%. I’ll come back in a week and see what Wisconson looks like, and based on the data I’ve received because I’ve put enough money into this campaign, I know that a week is enough data for me to see that this will either be performing the way I want to or not. I’ll check and see how high of a cost per conversion. Now, I want to see what’s costing me the most. California comes in at 353 clicks. That’s significantly higher than the rest and it’s costing me $55.02. But, I get a good cost per conversion and this is a good portion of my audience for this campaign specifically. I can also see here what is also costing me and not converting. This cost me $0.32, Missouri. I could set a bid adjustment on that. But, I might monitor that for another week or so and see if we don’t get any conversion in there, I might decrease by 5% and just keep bumping it up if I don’t see conversions. In fact, right now, I’ll go ahead and decrease this for Missouri because in the last 30 days there hasn’t been a lot of conversions for Missouri. Nevada $0.32 – Washington – New York. I’m going to monitor the rest of these for now. Missouri is not really a highly targeted one for this specific campaign based on what we’re trying to sell, they’re not a high demographic. So, now you know how to set your locations. You can set your bid adjustments. Use the data right here. If you’re looking for more impressions, you’re trying to brand more you’ll want to focus on impressions and maybe set higher bid adjustments for that. Or, if you’re trying to see more traffic, you know, see where you’re getting the most clicks, focus on those. If you’re trying to get a lower cost per click, focus on the data that’s important to you. For me, really, right now, it’s about cost per conversion and cost and my conversion data.
