Personally, waste of money. Showing up on a national level for a local business does not make sense. Around 70% of people totally ignore ads anyhow. It may work, but I will not do it.

I can tell from your post you have never used it.

You can target your ads geographically.

Mine will only show up if the computer you are using is in the area I have indicate that I want my adds displayed.

I use it and have had excellent results. I estimate that 50% of my business last summer was the result of my Adwords advertising.

I have used it and you would not believe where my ad would show up even setting it correctly. I have seen ads from Oregon and Washington state when I was sitting in Tennessee. These were also local targeting.

What about those that have a remote ISP? Mine says I am in Missoula when I am 125 miles away.

Good luck to you though, just not for me.

used it to flash advertise for overseeding/winter grass. Worked ok but not great. Will probably do it again though.

Side note I was lucky and had a $100 coupon for it....

Do you think it showed up like that at all because of recent google searches you did that pull up your ad?

I guess it could be but I never search for my site specifically. It just made me laugh to see my ad on this site.
