who are the search partners

Who are Google Search Partners? I'm getting thousands of impressions when I add the Search Partners and some clicks that are not my target audience. I saw that it's Yahoo, etc. Who are they? I may choose not to keep the Search Partners if they are not only irrlevant to my campaigns but also costing me clicks with no possibility of ROI.

Hi Techmom,

In Search Partners, it's all or nothing. Good news is that performance on search partners does not affect the QS on Google.

You can segment your reports on network to see how search partners compare in performance to Google search.

Best of Luck!

Hi Pete, Thank you, but I did know that. I would like to know who, by name, the Search Partners are. I pay for the clicks and I think I'm entitled to know what sites my ads are appearing on. Also, I would like to know when I add a negative keyword to my list how long it takes for the Search Partners to implement that.

Hi Techmom,

Ask.com, Aol.com, webcrawler.com etc are some google search partners.

and the name you have referred "yahoo.com" is not the search partners it is basically Google display network.

Thank you. That helps. Does Google have a list that is available?
