Other Devices

Hi,

 

In my account, when I extract device performance reports I found that a lot of money was spent on Other Devices. I'm not interested in targeting these other devices but after reducing the bids for mobile devices by 100% still my ads are showing on these devices. Please suggest how should I remove targeting these devices.

 

Thanks,

Anurag Saxena

Hi Anurag,

As far as I am aware there is no way to get rid of other devices. Reducing mobile bid will reduce the number of them as some are wap enabled phones, but it will not eliminate them all. Unfortunately as they are in this classification there is no way to know what they are and therefore no way to eliminate them.

Perhaps someone else has a sneaky work around, in which case I would love to hear it!

Sorry I couldn't be more help

Hi Anurag,

I think there is no any way to track Other devices data through adwords, we can do this things through analytics only. I have posted one useful link which can help on it i.e http://cutroni.com/blog/2014/04/10/understanding-cross-device-measurement-and-the-user-id/
