From Placements > Exclusions how do I easily exclude all mobile apps and games from my whole adwords account? I have read to exclude adsenseformobileapps.com but it gives an error when I try it: https://www.screencast.com/t/niix9JxyUcL


Also when I excluded the whole 144+ mobile apps categories it would give this same error when I try and exclude them from my account, meaning I have to checkbox 144+ categories for each campaign.

Hi Kevin,

Please try the method used below:


Stop targeting mobile apps

If you don’t want your ads to show in apps, you can target the web exclusively.

  1. Click the Campaigns tab, then select the campaign you want to edit.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Scroll to “Advanced settings”, then click Device: target device types, specific devices, and device connection types.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Click Always show on mobile, then click Mobile app and Mobile app interstitial to deselect them. 
  6. Click Always show on tablet, then click Tablet app and Tablet app interstitial to deselect them. 
  7. Click Save and Continue
