Hey everyone,

I have over 400 GDN campaigns and would like to apply Campaign Site Category Exclusions to each one. Is there a way to do this in bulk within the adwords interface or adwords editor? Or will I need to go through each campaign and add this individually?

Site category exclusions are available in Editor, under a slightly different name of Content exclusions. Look for them in the bottom left corner of the editing pane in Campaigns view. Select the campaigns you want to modify, click Edit link under Content exclusions, and select the exclusions you'd like to apply to all those campaigns. Or set up one campaign the way you want, copy it, and use Paste link under Content exclusions to apply the same configuration to other campaigns you select.

Hi There, 

 

Been looking through every option but cant seem to find "Content Exclusions" in the Manage module. The only things I see under "Keywords and Targeting" are as follows: 

Keywords

keywords Negative

Locations

Locations Negative

Placements

Placements Negative

Mobile Apps

Mobile apps Negative 

Mobile app categories

Mobile app categories, Negative

Youtube videos

Hello @Angeli V,

Bulk site category exclusions are not available in both AdWords interface and AdWords Editor at the moment Smiley Sad The best way would be to do negative topics exclusion.

To do so in AdWords Editor:
- Select all the campaigns that you want to apply this to
- Under Keywords and targeting, you will see Topics, Negative
- Click on it >> Add Negative topic >> Campaign Negative topic
- Highlight all the campaigns that you want to apply this to >> Click on Add

If you have some time, I would also encourage you to fill up this product feedback form.https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/cfeedback?vid=1-635808204394100643-3746788175 

Google might include this feature, and it would help others too.
