Getting Clicks from Excluded Locations

Hi All

 

This is regarding an adwords campaign where I am targeting 2 city and have excluded all other states of India (except state of targeting city).

Location options are

Exclude  = People in, searching for, or who show interest in my excluded location
 
and report under dimension (user location, geographic) are showing correct report. means clicks are getting from targeted city
BUT
in Analytic, I am getting Google/cpc clicks also from my Excluded locations.
Further, client is saying that he is getting call from excluded location.
 
 
AM I MISSING SOMETHING IN SETITNGS?
 
Please give your input.
 
Thanks
Anil

Hi Anil,

 

For locations, AdWords relies on 3rd party IP address data. This data isn't 100% accurate (I've heard anecdotes of it being approx 80% accurate), but it is best on offer and the best Google can do.
