Hi Haseeb,

 

In addition to what Jon said above, I was going through the following the doc sheet available in Adwords help center and I couldn't find Syria as a targeting option in Adwords:

Hi Haseeb_Ahsan, I seem to recall this question coming up some time ago and I think that the answer was that Syria isn't currently available for targeting.  I'll check for you.

Thanks Jon. I've tried to add in targeted locations in Adwords account but did not find Syria in countries selection. Your reply would be greatly appreciated so I can answer my client in brief.

Hi all,

Jon's right on: at this point, Syria is not an available country to target.

Thank you guys. So this means traffic data showing in analytics from Syria, are the visitors who forcefully using google domain (google.com) and visits my site.

Thanks

Hi Haseeb. Actually it is not hat right, there is a liitle gap. You can e.g target the whole world and than exclude the countries you do not want to appear. But there ar emore countries as Syria which actually are not eligible to be targeted, you than would serve as well on those, because you cannot exclude them.

Hi

You cannot exclude, what you cannot select...

Means Syria is not selectable as target country
but somehow is included in all countries.

If you do not want Syria, you shall not select All Countries and Territories
Rather select all the listed countries manually in which you want to appear.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Ramona F
