Getting the Location of Users Who Searched for a Keyword

This page has been deprecated and the content will not be refreshed as of February 2013.

Instead please see Ad Intelligence Service Reference, Researching and Pricing Keywords, or Bing Ads API Overview.

To get the geographical location of users who have searched for specific keywords, call the GetKeywordLocations operation. You can request that locations be shown at country, state, metropolitan, or city level. The operation returns the location information broken out by device type. You can use the information to target your ads to device types with the most reach and to locations with the most searches for the keyword.

The following example shows how to call the GetKeywordLocations operation.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.ServiceModel;

// BingAds.AdIntelligence is the application-defined namespace that 
// this example uses for the Ad Intelligence service reference. 

using GetLocations.BingAds.AdIntelligence;

        private static string m_token = "<devtokengoeshere>";

        // Specify the advertiser's account ID.

        private static long m_accountId = <accountidgoeshere>;
