Hide address and phone number

I'm advertising my book via adwords, and don't want my address and phone number included in the advertisement -- I only want the URL for purchasing the book listed. I have searched through help topics and have seen it mentioned that I can hide this information (and I've seen other authors do it), but other than it only takes a few clicks of a mouse, I can't find specific information on how to do this.

First of all, do you have an adwords account, or an adwords express account? Express is tied to your places account, and "hiding" the address may not be possible.

If this is just a standard adwords account, and you don't want to show a location extension with your ad, you could delete the location extension.

 

In your campaign tab, make sure you have your ad extensions tab enabled. Click on the ad extensions tab, then click view: location extensions. Check on the box next to ad extension, then click delete. That should remove any location extension, and address which may show with the ad.

 

Expand the edit location extension section, and you should find what you're looking for.

Thank you! I had searched for ages until I found this, and in 5 min removed my home address.
