counties abbreviation as negative keyword

Hey all thanks in advance. I am selling only in the US. I noticed people's search term including UK and other abbreviations of other countries. so I added all counties abbreviations as BM negitives, but then I started thinking, because I have blocked UK, does they also mean the search terms including UK like "luke" would also be blocked because they contain my negative KW?

 

thanks again

Hey Brendan!

 

The a search terms like 'Luke' will not be blocked due to the negative keyword.

 

I would encourage you to exclude the UK in location settings. Settings > locations> +Locations>advanced search> search for the UK and select 'Exclude'.

Hi @brendan c,

 

Look at this snip, please.

In addition to the advice posted by @Jillian S, remember to apply advanced location settings as shown above. They will restrict your geo-targeting to the items specified by you.

 

Best,
