Hi all,

 

How do we exclude homepage of a website?

i don't want to show ads on For example: www.drugs.com, but if i add it under exclusion list, entire website is getting blocked and i don't want that. I wish to show ads on other pages of the site.

 

Is there any way? please help

Dear Praveen G

Please visit the following Link for Drug Website Related policies .
Please visit following link for more details : https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176031?hl=en

However if you want to show ads for other pages and not Home page , The Solution is please mention : www.drug.com/XYZ in your Display Url ( please note that this URL is just used for Display Purpose and this is not Clickable , so you can put any keyword after / , Just make sure to be in URL character Limit Criteria of Google.

and please add the page you want to get clicked in Destination URL .

for e.g.: i pulled this page from your website http://www.drugs.com/pill_identification.html , Please write this link in Destination URL . This way you will get clicks on your website Inner pages and not home page.

Hi Praveen,

Excluding www.drugs.com will indeed exclude the whole www subdomain of drugs.com. If you want to exclude a single page, you'd have to list that page in your exclusion, for example: www.example.com/page.html

In your specific case, you could exclude www.drugs.com/index.html to exclude the homepage

Hi Praveen,

 

I would suggest you to review this screenshot given in the help center notes (https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2454012?hl=en) and see if that can be of benefit to you or not in excluding domain:
