I am running a GDN campaign and unfortunately it is visible in countries that are not relevant such as Syria and some other countries.

 

Why doesn't google allow me to remove some these countries from my target??

Hi @Abruzzo T,

 

Chances are you are using the advanced location settings the wrong way and that's why your ads are also shown in countries you did not wish to target.

Please make sure they are set as shown below my sig.

 

Best,

I am not sure of how many countries the globe hosts. More than 150 I think. However, it's not very efficient to keep watching geo stats and excluding newly appearing countries. It's much easier to target your own country (e.g. the US) and apply the settings shown above.

 

If you don't, chances are just excluding countries will not help.
