Create geographic location of presence reports

Geographic location of presence reports show the number of clicks, conversions, and other metrics that your campaigns and ad groups receive in specific geographic areas, such as city, state, or region. The reports are available from the Dimensions tab or by segmenting campaign or ad groups reports.

In Google Ads accounts, you can use the results of your analysis to choose how to target your ads and adjust bids for a specific geographic area. Learn more.
