Excluded locations

Not applicable
# 1
Not applicable

If I have an excluded location within an included location, for example a postcode within a county. Which setting takes precedent? If the whole area is included regardless of me excluding the postcode, is there an easier way of doing this?

 

thanks

Eddy

Hi Koji,

 

Exclusion will take effect. In your example, the whole country will be targeted except that zip code. To that end, however, you'll need to apply settings to your advanced geographic targeting as shown below my signature.

Hi Eddy,

 

Your ads will be eligible to trigger for your targeted country and will not trigger within the specific postcode of that country which you have excluded.
If you want traffic only from the users which are physically present within your targeted location and want to exclude the traffic from the users physically present in that postcode, then set your location advanced setting as:
