Hi Avish,

If you are using the default

•People in, searching for, or viewing pages about your targeted location

Under Advanced location targeting option, then chances are there that your ads may be visible out side your targeted country based on a users search intent.

If you want to limit your targeting with in Singapore, then change the advanced location setting to

•People in your targeted location

Find more details in the below link.

Hope this helps,

I agree with "Info" . the other possibility is that User may be searching in Google Singapore domain.

Hi

I have excluded India and targeting Australia (People in your targeted location). Still my ads are appearing in India on Goole.ie .

As per the help center article,

“Reach people in my targeted location” allows you to show your ads only to anyone who is considered to be physically located within the area that you've targeted.

If people outside of your targeted area include terms related to your targeted locations in their searches, they won't see your ads. When using this targeting option, the location of interest such as location term in query is ignored.

So your ads should not be visible in India.

I am not sure why this is happening.

But I am curious here to know how much traffic you are getting from India, through Google.ie.
