Countries Exclusion

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a site for which I've targetted Kenya for the audience. That said I'm getting a shed load of traffic from the netherlands. Since then, I've excluded netherlands as a country, however - the bulk of my traffic is still coming from there....

 

I'm totally at a loss - what should I do please?

Hi Vimal,

Try this: in your campaign settings, under Locations, open the section "Location Options (advanced)." Make sure you're targeting "People in my target location" and not "People in, searching for, or viewing pages about my targeted location," which is the default.

Hope that works for you--let us know if not.
