No one is contacting me, my ads have been running for months.

I have text and display ads. Mainly one text ad has been getting clicks. I'm not advertising on random pages anymore because it seems like a bunch of kids are clicking on those pages since many of those sites are game sites. I have a display network so my ads are supposed to run on the local newspaper site for example but it doesn't show there much.

 

Any advice?

Hi Fitzgerald S,

 

Welcome.

 

If you want to show your ads on local newspaper sites then you should try managed placement instead of automatic placement.

 

Find more help here Managed placements.

 

Hope it helps.

 

Thanks,

Hi Fitzgerald S,

 

What is the target for your text ad which is getting - search network or display network or both?

 

For display ads you can avoid unwanted clicks by adding the managed placements as shuva said.

To do so, you can click on Campaign > Display network tab > Placements.

You can move your performing placements from automatic placements to managed to get more controlled clicks.

You can find best practices for placement targeting here-

To avoid clicks by kids, you can set demographic preferences. Below webpage is helpful to know more-

To control your ads further more with the interests of the visitors, you can set the interests

Campaign > Display network tab > Interests and remarketing

Hope this helps.

I have been using managed placement. My terminology may be a bit off but I've been doing things like that but my ads rarely show there, even when I increase my bids

I'm using both search and managed placement I believe. Specific sites and specific searches
