I am Creating New Audience programmatically but I want to set its GUID by code (my own)
Is it possible to do this ? if yes then how ?

AudienceID is an internal field set by SharePoint. You can't set it, but you can retrieve it if it has been saved to the db.
What is your requirement that means you have to control the audience ID? Typically you would retrieve Audience by name. If you need to you can then access the AudienceID value.
Hope that helps.
Please refer link below link Mr. Raju
You will find that it is not possible because SharePoint manages GUID internally. so you can not assign it. in some cases it is possible but in your case it is not possible.
I was able to do this. I created a custom stored procedure (by copying and modifying the one used by the API to create audiences) to create the audience with the GUID I needed. Look at the ORGLE procs inside the Profile DB to see how this is done.
Anyways, once I created the audiences with the proc. I used central admin to configure the rules.
In general, messing with SharePoint databases is not recommended. Be careful in doing this. Its always better to use the API. That being said, this worked out great. No issues. Well tested.

You can specify the audience GUID in audience rule ..
$newrule = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Audience.AudienceRuleComponent($property,"Not Contains","GUID"); [Void]$newaud.AudienceRules.Add($newrule);
