It is a pay-for-performance model: If an affiliate does not generate sales, it represents no cost to the merchant. Variations include banner exchange, pay-per-click, and revenue sharing programs. Websites that utilize PPC ads will display ...

Google Adwords Geo Targeting For Northern Ireland Continued ...
Since the somewhat less than helpful reply from Google Adwords support on how accurate geo targeting for the Northern Ireland region is. I decided to so a small (very unscientific) test using the Google Adwords Traffic Estimator. I typed in a number of keywords which I reckoned would get a relatively high search volume all over the UK (did I mention that this was very ‘unscientific’?) Then I asked for traffic estimates solely for the ‘Northern Ireland’ region.  Here are the results:- I then asked for the results from ‘England’, ‘Wales’, ‘Scotland’ :- Which means that if ... market research, surveys and trends

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Custom Geo Targeting - How specific can you really go? - AdWords Help
I was wondering if anybody had any experience with going beyond Google's recommended 10m minimum radius? I know you can create any shape and target any location, but how accurate is it really? Google themselves don´t sound too confident in the targeting when going below 10, 20 or even 30 miles which probably answers my question but if somebody has any experience with testing any campaigns and can feedback I would appreciate any feedback.
