I'm on the east coast but I keep getting daily pageloads from Mnt View, CA...all with different IP Addresses. Also from different countries.

Hello Davel,

 

You should exclude all locations that you dont want to receive traffic from.  So just go to your campaign, then go to settings, then scroll down to Locations and edit it to exclude west coast and central states.

 

BTW, Google is in Moutain View California.

 

Hope this helps.

Hello there;

I would work it a bit differently and target only the states you are interested in;

Please also note, that if you want to target only people who are physically in these states (vs. those who search about the location) - in the advanced targeting options, choose "people in my location only"

Thank you. Why does google come to my site daily with different IP Addresses and different operating systems ex. winvista, winXP?

Could be that your account is under review, hence you are getting visits from MT View CA

I've been using AdWords since January, and why different IP addresses and O.S.?
