Automated placements

HI guys! I was looking for a way to exclude whole domains, but unfortunately I didn't find anything that could help me. I get a lot of impressions on automated websites not relevant to the targeted country, because of similarities in keywords. Anyone any ideas on how to target more precisely?

Hi,

You can go over the next URL to know how to exclude specific placement:

But have you heard about Managed Placement? I recommend to go over the following URL to know how to target specific placement.

You should know also that there are a lot of target options across the display campaign that can help you to refine your results and narrow your audience like Keyword, Interest Categories, Topics, Age, gender.. you can use single target option alone or combine between them.

Please have a look on the following URL to know how to use target options:

Hi,

Thanks for the answer! I am using all kinds of targeting as placements,keywords, topics, interests, but what I really wanted to know is if I can, for example exclude a whole domain like:
www.somewebsite.ru is there a way to exclude all websites from .ru domain?

Hi Lyubomir,

 

Unfortunately I don't think there's a way to exclude an entire country domain (i.e. all .ru websites). You could try excluding Russia in the location settings of your campaign. 

 

I hope this helps!
