    I have a geo-targeting question that I couldn't find. If I place a geo-targeted keyword specific to a state, does that mean that if someone searches from outside the state they will NOT see the ad?

    I am asking b/c I placed a geo-targeted ad for Connecticut but since I am in Florida, the ad still showed up (it just had the state name at the bottom of it to show it was geo-targeted).

    However, the ad was still not HIDDEN from me which I thought would happen.

    Also, if you are using direct linking, will the LOCAL ad supercede the NATIONWIDE ad if the bid amount is exactly the same?
