What to consider when setting up contextual advertising in Greece?

Greece is interesting for its original culture and special geographical position (the country’s territory consists of many islands). These and other nuances must be taken into account when setting up contextual advertising in Greece. Let’s deal with them in more detail.

Geo targeting

The capital of Greece, Athens, is home to almost a third of the population of this country (3.3 million people). It is certainly a global city and every year it hosts numerous international exhibitions, scientific conferences, cultural events or political events.

This is something to keep in mind when setting up location targeting in Google Ads. Athens and the nearest radius around them should be the main focus of the advertising campaign.

In addition, take into account the pendulum migration from the suburbs to the capital, as well as from small surrounding islands by sea. People can look for a hotel that is located on the island while in Athens (on the mainland) during the day. Keep this in mind when setting up your ad serving location.

Temporal targeting

When controlling bidding in an advertising campaign, when setting time targeting, keep in mind that every day from 12:00 to 16:00 in most areas of business there will be a fading of user activity, and immediately after that – a surge.

This is due to the fact that it is at this time in Greece that the siesta is the hottest time of the day, when many offices and businesses across the country close and people wait out the heat at home.

Local ad campaigns

Especially relevant for small tourist towns and settlements. If your business is related to tourism (hotels, restaurants, cafes, excursions), try local Google Ads campaigns.

They will help advertise on Google Maps, where millions of tourists who visit Greece every year are used to looking for reviews and location of hostels, catering facilities, bars and tourist attractions.
