Targeting Locations And Places



I’m searching for a means to get detailed metadata on targeting locations, and I’ve found the “geo search” endpoint in the REST API, outside the Ads API.

Is there any way to cross-reference a location targeting criterion with the corresponding place that’s returned from the geo search endpoint? It would let us do some really neat things on the UI side in our application from a targeting perspective.


Some location ids returned from the Ads API GET targeting_criteria/locations can be passed to the REST API GET geo/id/:place_id endpoint for additional information. However, do note that not all targeting criteria locations will be available, so that is something you should be sure to handle.


Hi Helen,

Do you have any rules of thumb for which types of locations will typically have places? Is it the larger ones, like countries, states, terrorities, zip codes?
