There is a simple solution to this, add to the campaign exclusion list anonymous.google and you won't be displayed to any of those sites.

 

Those are website that did not want to make public their url to the advertisers.

 

There are also many useful settings in the "Category exclusion" like this removing all sites with "below the fold" display of your ad, for more info read here

Hi Majid Ali k,

 

Take a look at this post from Calin AKA AdWiser:  http://www.adwiserhq.com/blog/anonymous-adwords-placements/

 

Just might help you out in determining whether or not these placements are worth it.

thanks for your time but i have one question, If i go to exclude the placements and put the url anonymous.google, it will work on all anonymous urls..?

because these urls are different by numeric form.

I think so , they are like subdomains of this domain. You can also look at your Ads tab and Segment button / keywords or placements to see what combination of ads and placements works best

Thank you; please note that I'm currently messing about with its theme and certain things may not display quite as they should. Hopefully the content area will not suffer too much, though.

 

I do not think one can exclude anonymous.google in bulk, as it is not a domain name. xyz.anonymous.google does not resolve to anything.

 

And I did not see any documentation regarding a feature that would cause the system to exclude anonymous placements if you use anonymous.google as an excluded placement. I'm not saying it doesn't work, I'll test it, but I don't think it works.

 

I think you're left with frequent reports in Analytics and AdWords Editor.

It is documented here , and it works the same for the regular Display Campaign

To exclude all anonymous sites, enter anonymous.google.
