Hi Eduardo, 

 

You can use 'Account Level Exclusions' to remove certain placements you want to avoid. Source: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/7020281?hl=en

Josh thanks but it doesn`t work. Adwords doesn't allow. Very weird.

Are you sure Eduardo? 

 

Google documentation says the following Note: While targeting within Smart display campaigns is automated, AdWords offers additional controls to help you manage where your ads appear. You can create account-level placement exclusions to prevent your ad from showing on specific sites. "

Hi @Joshua R

 

I was just looking at your solution with this document:

Any idea on how to exclude those mobile placements under account level? See below:
