Does someone know if you can add a negative keyword by state only ?

Does anyone know how you would add a negative keyword so that your ad does not appear in a search for that exact keyword but only in certain states you want to exclude ?

Hi Sy
Unfortunately, you cannot "nest" targeting like this. You'd need a separate campaign targeting those states to have functionality like this I'm afraid.

I would love to see some super granular targeting like this in AdWords but you'd be getting down to the programmatic level then and most people think AdWords is complicated enough as it is Smiley Happy
