I want to prevent my Google retargeting ads from appearing on sites/pages with unsuitable content eg gambling and porn. Is this possible?

Hi @Sandra G

 

You certainly can.

 

Inside Adwords click the "Display Network" tab > click the red "Targeting" button > choose a campaign from "Campaign Exclusions" > click the edit pencil for "site category options" > choose "exclude" next to any categories you want to exclude > click "save" at the bottom

 

They have a "sexually suggestive" and "gambling" categories.
