Geo targeting not working?

Hi;

I've set up geo targeting for my youtube video campaign to 4 countries in total. Unfortunately, in Analytics, I see the audience driven by this campaign still coming outside the area indicated. How is this supposed to work?

Thanks.

Hey Adam, how are things?

On your campaign settings under "Location options (advanced)", you need to select "People in my targeted location"

By default, geo targeting on Google turn on "People in, searching for, or who show interest in my excluded location", which may cause traffic from outside the desired location.

Hope this helps.

I had it setup properly already, but... Just now I noticed Analytics has a lag presenting ore granular data. So after a few days after the targeting change, I finally saw it working.

Thanks for help!
