Yes, you can definitely target Google Ads by location.

This is one of the most important features you can take advantage of when advertising using Google Ads, and is a strong benefit to using Google Ads compared to using SEO.

You can choose to target a specific location where you want your ads to appear to help you find the right customers and also restrict it in areas where you don’t want to target to avoid irrelevant clicks and impressions.

Location targeting includes countries, areas within a country such as a city, state or postcode, a radius around a location, or location groups. You can also target places of interest, your business address, or you can target based on average household income per postcode.

Getting the locations right for your offer can definitely improve your Return on Investment.

For example, let’s say you have a physical shop, office or clinic and you want to attract people nearby. You could target people within a radius of your address, or people who live in suburbs where they would likely drive past you every day if you are located on a main road between their home and their workplace.

Another possibility would be to segment each nearby postcode separately so that you can see if there are some postcodes that don’t turn into conversions.

(On this, my partner specialises in Geospatial Science and he says that people don’t like to cross main roads, so it’s important to target people in suburbs on the same side of the main road. Could be worthwhile testing this in your ads by segmenting by postcode).

Another possibility might be that you target broad areas but then exclude some specific areas where you know you won’t find your target customers. You can do this by excluding specific regions, or you can use demographic targeting by household income.

The household income targeting option is based on the average household income for an IP address range (IP addresses are location dependent). Similar to targeting by suburb, the household income targeting will average the incomes for a particular district and therefore will automatically group households by location without you needing to do this manually.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.
