Radius Targeting Problem

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi there all, hope you're all keeping well.

 

My question is regarding targeting people in the radius i have chosen, i'm having search terms which ends up being a click to my website which have a keyword of a town which is outside of my targeted area, clearly it's no good because i only want customers within 4 miles to me, not 10 miles which would be a wasted click.

 

For example, i live in a town called Romford and have a radius location of 4 miles but i will have search terms such as this: "Computer repairs Harlow" which that town is miles away, how can i stop this?

 

Many thanks,

Mehdi

Location targeting isn't perfect, and only a 4 mile radius may be a bit too restrictive. But, if that's the way you want to go, set your advanced location targeting settings to only target users in my targeted area, and exclude users in or showing interest in my excluded area.
