I'm finding sites with .uk and .au in my display/remarketing placements but targeting US-Only-help?

I need to eliminate non-US countries from seeing my ads.

I'm targeting only the US and I'm excluding everyone else...can anyone offer insight?

 

I keep seeing .uk and .au in lists of sites that my ad was placed on.

Hi jskincare,

 

Geo-targeting is based on the user's location, not the location of the web site. Is your campaign geo-targeting set to include "search intent"? If it is, you'll probaly want to change that to "location only".

 

Best of Luck!
