Mobile Device IP Location

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi,

 
I am currently running ads in Newcastle, but we are getting a lot of mobile traffic from London.
We have the ads to show only in Newcastle.
 
How are we getting London mobile traffic for ads that should only appear in Newcastle?
 
I was reading about Mobile device IP's and it was saying that your provider assigns your device an IP. But does this device IP change everytime you move location or is it fixed.
 
I am trying to find answer to explain this traffic.
Thank you for any help.

Hi @Craig P

 

Kindly make sure that you have opted to "People in my targeted location" in campaign settings (screenshot below)

Let me know if you have already opted for this setting

Hi,

 

The traffic is just under 3% of overall traffic. 

But when view the AdWord campaigns it a larger percentage.

Hi @Craig P

 

The traffic seems not huge if it is 3%, in adwords have you checked Geographic report or user location report ?
