Is there a way to turn off specific search partners without turning off all of them?

I suspect that certain search partners (search.mywebsearch.comn, search-results.com, and search.babylon.com) are the source of the majority of fraudulent clicks to my campaign. I'd like to exclude these without excluding the others. Is this possible?

Hello cocobananas ; Welcome to the community;


This is a nice question; and a wish of many advertisers....Smiley Happy

At the moment, you can opt out of having your campaign on ALL search partners, but not to exclude a specific one.

Hi MosheTLV,

 

Just a crazy shot in the dark here but would it be possible to add the unwanted site to "Managed Placements" and then Exclude it??

 

Thanks!

RPquest;


This is what many are expecting, that Google will also offer managed placements on the Search Network (similar to Display Network).

However, currently, managed placements feature is available on Display Network only; while the question was about search partners on the search network.

For large advertisers spending $100K+ per month on AdWords, Google may consider turning off specific Search Partner sites on a case-by-case basis. In my experience, they will only consider this if the advertiser mines referral web logs to show Google where fraudulent activity is coming from.

MosheTLV,

 

OK, Thanks...Hopefully (sometime soon) Google will offer the same Managed Placement in their Partner Search Networks

 

Thanks Again,

Thanks all. I suspected as much, but wanted to double-check.

I don't think so.  Advertisers have been requesting this change for years.  Clearly, it's not an engineering problem.  It's a business decision.  I'm not sure why, but Google has decided it's all or nothing for the search partners.

Anyone can request a manual exclusion for their account.

MosheTLV,

 

How would I go about excluding all search partners?

 

Thank you.
