Is there a way to turn off location extensions?

Hi Folks,

 

I'm trying to help a client improve the performance of his AdWords accounts. Back on 8/25 (before I got involved), Google apparently changed location extensions so that they're automatically added at the account, tied into Google Business pages.

 

I'd like to pause the location extensions for this client's account since the extensions are costing money but not driving conversions.

 

Is there a process for pausing them??

Hi david,

 

Yes, you can disable Location extensions for a particular Ad group or Campaign. Refer the following help center article for more information.

Yes. You don't need to have location extensions. Go to the extensions tab and click "edit" on the lower portion and remove the extension.

If I disable a campaign location extension, will it prevent the account location extension from showing to this campaign too?
