I provide website hosting services for a small number of our customers. All of my customers are small local business and they do not conduct any business outside of their local area. We've incorporated geoblocking on our customers websites to block all foreign web traffic to our web servers and one of our customers is not able to get an adword campaign approved because we are blocking traffic that does not come from the US. How do we get a campaign approved for our client while also not compromising our web servers to foreign attacks?

Hi Greg,

 

Sites promoted with AdWords must be free from any geo-blocking. Google maintains servers all around the world, and you don't know where they will access your site from. If they can't find your site, it will be suspended.
