Hi Kate,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Location info shown with your ads and on maps are from Google My Business. You'll have to log in and remove it from there. More info and steps to do this here.

 

Cheers,

Hi Kate,

 

I am not sure whether you're using AdWords Express or AdWords. Let me tell you both ways -

 

For AdWords, the location info with your Ad is shown through Location Extension. But, it shows only when you enable it. To remove it, you can follow the instructions here . Go to the page, scroll down towards bottom, and expand the tab that says - Prevent Your Addresses from Showing. 

 

If you are using AdWords Express, which I am more likely to believe, follow the instructions below:

 

  1. Sign in to your AdWords Express account at https://adwords.google.com/express/
  2. Click the business with the ad.
  3. Click the arrow next to your ad. From the "Edit" dropdown menu, select Headline and ad text.
  4. Uncheck the box next to “Show street address” to hide your address, or check the box to show your address.
  5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope it helps. 

 

Thanks

It's 2018, and the checkbox in step 4 is no longer there. How to hide address?
