Hi @hassan,

 

You need to change your campaign's location options advanced settings as

 

Target: People in my targeted location

Exclude: People in my excluded location

Hi @hassan,

 

 

Your have mentioned that "i mention all city in map exception area what i want to exclude it and it ok my ads is not showing in this area"

It means your ads are not triggering in excluded locations.

 

my keywords is leaks and water leaks if i search by water leaks in riyadh my ads will show in area name (b){where (b) is the excluded area and Riyadh must be the targeted area}

 

So if you mention the targeted area name(Riyadh along with water leak)in the search query, the ad is triggering.

 

It simply means AdWords is showing the ads to the users searching for, or who show interest in my targeted location(as per your current location options advanced settings).

You need to change the settings of your campaign(mentioned in the previous post)
