Hi Perryd32,

Welcome to the community.

May be you are getting clicks from other countries because of your "Advance Target Location Setting".By default it is "People in searching for or viewing page about my target location",which Your ad to appear for anyone who is likely to be physically located in your targeted location, in addition to anyone who is located anywhere and searches for or view web pages on the Google Display Network about your targeted location.

Hi Perry,

In addition to Drazen's spot on advice, I would also advice to add locations you not willing to show ads in negative keywords lists. For example: "cardiac surgery in USA" & you are targeting people to have surgery in India. You can add broad negative usa, unites states, us.

Hope that makes sense!

Restrict location with broad modifier, that will be help you to get more relevant visitors. If you will get query again after restriction then you have to send mail to ad-words support team regarding CPC after validating country.

And I would add that you can block people with IP adress range.
In that way you can block all traffic from some country`s, or you can block specific ISP-s.

We prefer focusing on states. We are a small business and prefer limiting the AdWords to those states that comprise our best customer base. We have only ten (10) states listed in Locations, yet, when I look from where the clicks are originating, half of them are coming from Russia. How is this possible? literally 50% are coming from the RU and we consider this lost revenue, since we only ship in the US.

Hi Eages,

Welcome to adwords community,
If you are targeting states are usa but you are getting clicks from russia. You need to exclude russia in location setting.
and follow the procedure.
1. Click on Campaign on which you are getting clicks from russia.
2.Click on setting.
3. Click on Advance location setting.
4. Select on people in my target location.

then your ads will live only those location where you have targeted.

Hope it helps you.
