Hello!

 

In an AdWords campaign, I targeted only one country, but when I look at the data from Analytics, I see lots of clicks coming from other countries, too.

 

What can be the possible reason for that?

Hi,

Please Check your ‘advanced location options’ in Adwords setting. 

 

AdWords sets a default advanced targeting setting for 'People in, searching for, or viewing pages about my targeted location' which includes clicks from outside the physical targeting.

 

you have to change to "People in my targeted location."

 

Thanks

Important: In case you have a standard campaign, you won’t see any advanced options including ‘advanced location settings’. Hence, you would need to first change the campaign type to ‘All features’ and you can then edit the ‘advanced location options as mentioned above.
