Hello,

 

I tried today to add what appears to me to a be a normal placement , but it doesn't work . Can anyone tell me why and if there is something in the placement formating that I can do to make it work ?

 

The placement URL is this :

megaajutor.bizoo.ro/cauta/producator-pfa/pagina-1

 

This is the error :

Adding negatives using the interface works, but I had issues when I tried placement exclusion by adding the URLs directly!

Hi Adrian,

I have experienced the same issue. The problem is when we try to add a placement URL that is more than 2 levels deep (in most cases).

Here is a discussion with some details.

And this is an external link with more information.

Hope this helps,

Deepak

Oh I see. Thanks.

I will try 2 level links.

 

I wonder if this applies to negative placements too , it wold be a big disadvantage not to be able to exclude specific pages when they are as a 3 level link or more.
