Hi there,a few days ago Google AdSense began showing me ads in the wrong language everywhere, like on YouTube, on websites etc. Despite having the language settings set to English and United Kingdom as location on top of a British VPN with the kill switch permanently on, it started showing me ads in Italian out of the blue. Sure, I am in Italy, but I don’t wanna see stuff in Italian, why would I use a VPN otherwise?! I have also disabled the shared location and in a desperate attempt to get ads back in English I even installed an app to mock up my location (I’ve put my British address there). Nothing. It still shows every bloody ad in Italian. What bothers me is that other apps like Facebook are perfectly fine with it and correctly show me ads in English, so why can’t Google? I mean, c’mon, I don’t wanna see ads in another language…
Ad targeting by language
Ad language is automatically being chosen by the algorithm using more than one criteria, and it is not configurable.
You could try experimenting with language and country parameters:https://youtu.be/hQvszlgm-_E?t=2419
And check your configuration:https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+my+ip
And try other communities:
Probably worth noting there are different types of VPN services:https://www.google.com/search?q=%22technically+a+secure+proxy+service%22
