Hi Shai,

You can place countries in a negative audience either via AdWords Editor or via AdWords web interface.

Check out this article and search for the section "Instructions to edit your targeting or exclusion option":
https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722038?

Also to be 100% sure, do the following:
(a) go to your campaign settings.
(b) Select "Location options (advanced)"
(c) Go to "Target" click edit and select only "People in my targeted location"

That way you'll ensure people who are in your undesired countries will not see ads from their searches.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

 

In order to exclude countries not listed in Adwords you have to use IP Exclusion under your campaign settings. If you don't know how follow this guide: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2456098?hl=en

I have prepared a list of Syrian IP Allocations (2016) that will block 99% of Syria's traffic:

With the same method you can block any country you want that is not listed in adwords, just google for the countries ip allocations.
