Location targeting helps you get your ad in front of people in a specific geographic location. You can target by country, region, metro area, postal code, or designated market area (DMA). We recommend choosing targeting locations based on places where your customers live and where your business can serve them.
Note: The default location used in Ads Manager is your business' country. For example, US businesses will default to targeting people located in the United States.
- Click Countries, regions, and metros to add larger geographic locations
- Click Postal codes to add specific cities and towns
- When entering Japanese postal codes use the format: [JP:941-0000]
If you’re interested in targeting specific locations based on media markets, you can use DMA or designated market area targeting. This type of targeting is only available in the US and UK. In the US, there are 210 metros mapped to Nielsen’s DMA definition. In the UK, there are 15 ITV metros mapped to ITV’s definition of regional broadcasting locations.
If you’d like to add DMA targeting, select Pick specific locations under Locations. Then click Countries, regions and metros. Click the caret right icon next to either U.S. or United Kingdom, then click the caret right icon next to Metros to select the metros you want to target.
