Age targeting

*”Display Ads (Guaranteed)” is available for limited users who have a contract for Display Ads (Guaranteed).


With age targeting, you can specify the age category of interest users to whom you want to deliver ads and narrow down where your ads are delivered.

You can set the age groups to deliver ads for each ad group. Selecting several age groups is also possible.

Note
The accuracy of targeting is not guaranteed. Selected settings and other factors may cause inaccuracy of this targeting.

Previous age groups

The old age groups that had been used before June 8, 2021, were ended.
Numbers of the actual performance that occurred in the old format are seen with the string "(previous)" on the performance report and on the list of age targetings.

Example of old age group
"22-29 (previous)"

Predicted users

Predicted users are users who are presumed to be in the age group by machine learning based on the ad delivery results and interests based on the user's search history. Ads are displayed for users who are assumed to be target users of that age group, in addition to the explicitly targeted age group users.

Example
When you select checkbox of “20-24”:
→Ads will be delivered to users of “age determined 20 to 24” and users “with ages predicted 20 to 24.”
