Hi All,


I am doing adwords campaign for a client. My target location for all campaigns is India and I have specified it in my location settings. But after the first day of campaign,I could notice that a significant traffic(57%) is coming from countries other than India . Please help with this issue. I am not able to understand why this is happening.  Thanks.

First of all select campaigns type all features, then you will be able to see advance location option into your campaign setting. From advance location option you need to choose include target location "traffic from selected location" only the second option.
You can also exlcude location by keeping countries name feom which you dont want traffic, and choose advace location filter to exclude traffic from targeted locations.
