Google GPS Advertising

We’ve speculated a little bit on what a Google GPS product might be like. Recently Google has started to share some of their thoughts about how Google, GPS, and advertising might mesh together.

For example while driving down the road, Google feels the advertisements you hear on the radio should match the stores you are driving by based on your GPS location. Advertisements could also talk about nearby locations and then offer you directions to the store via GPS navigation.

This model could be assisted with the dMarc Broadcasting acquisition by Google back in January.

Google plans to extend targeted, measurable advertising to the broadcast space. In fact, even as you read this, our engineers and executives are working to seamlessly integrate dMarc’s technologies and operations to offer AdWords advertisers a broad suite of digital broadcast options. – dMarc

The location information defines potential geographical relevance of the input text. In determining the location information, the location classifier may receive at least one geo-relevance profile associated with at least one string in the input text, obtain a combined geo-relevance profile for the document from the at least one geo-relevance profile, and determine geographical relevance of the input text based on the combined geo-relevance profile.

  2. in print display advertising, how can I describe the proper address for GPS (not coordinates) Shenandoah Caverns does not always come up in a GPS search. The two “towns” share the same zip code but Quicksburg post office overrides. I don’t want to list Quicksburg as our address in our ads,i give direction:
    “Just 2 miles off I-81 at Exit 269
    (GPS: Quicksburg VA 22847)
    Is that how it is done?
