AdSense to Target by Coordinates

Posted By Darren Rowse 24th of February 2006 Adsense 6


A German publication has apparently reported in the last day or so that AdSense are planning on releasing the ability for advertisers to target ads not just by keywords but but coordinates or location. See a translation of the article here.

I know that there is already Geo-Targeting with AdSense but this seems to go a little further.

I can see this will be very popular with smaller/local advertisers when introduced.

  5. This is gonna be really good for advertisers, but perhaps not so much for publishers who try to optimize their sites for high paying keywords :(
