Here is an undocumented curiosity from the dark corners of one of my adwords campaign.

Anyone care to comment on what "other" means ?

 

[Later edit] ... and of course how to get rid of this type of "other" devices from a Display Network Campaign ?

Hi Adrian,

 

This is the explanation comes with "Other" Devices category, most probably WAP mobile devices.

These fellows were not invited to the "party".

 

Yes i've seen the bubble, but this is ridiculous as it isn't documented anywhere how to get rid of them ? Only by turning mobile display off ?

True, no documentation anywhere.

 

I don't think turning mobile display off will solve it as it is not sure the where this data is coming from.

Just adding something that might be useful for some though not an exact ans to explain "Others".

This is only visible if you download a report at campaign level with a device break down and provides data on the following devices

Computers
Tablets with full browsers
Mobile devices with full browsers
Other

If you go into the campaign settings and then to devices and then if you download a report then "Others" is not visible nor mentioned in the report. The devices mentioned in this report are as follows

Computers
Tablets with full browsers
Mobile devices with full browsers

Hope that helps!
