When someone says “geo-targeting”, we think of targeting a region and having your product/service being advertised for the searches in that area only. In turn, limiting your focus area to fewer clicks to more qualified users. But Yahoo! Search Marketing has implemented a new feature that will bring more traffic to your site.
