City targeting now available in Google AdWords in Baltics
 
Location targeting finally available for Baltics!
We are happy to announce that advertisers in the Baltics finally have the ability to define their target audience on a city or county level. This change will allow AdWords clients to select the geographical reach of their campaign, with currently 10 cities available from each of the Baltic states. The feature will be extremely useful for smaller businesses, operating only on a city level, and will bring a positive change in return on investment. 

In order to use the new feature, go to your campaign settings and enter the selected city to the location field. 
Please see the list of cities that can be found in the location targeting below.

Good luck!

The temple is very nice to visit. The inner yard has a nice view over the city.

Batu caves are certainly worth visiting. Caves have an astonishing interior and sneaky monkeys make it a fun experience. Unfortunately, caves are a bit trashed and only parts are kept clean.

Great place to enjoy a drink in a chilled atmosphere. Prices are good - RM 25 get you a drink that consists of 6 shots of a spirit of choice and a soft drink mixed in a bucket. Cheering with buckets with an open and international crowd makes a great fun.
