Reach affected by location term in keyword

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Hello, I am seeing an issue with one of my accounts and I have no idea how to solve it.

 

The idea of this campaign is for example to target people in the US looking to buy real estate in Uruguay. For that reason some of my keywords are:

buy real estate in uruguay

real estate montevideo

 

And I am targeting the U.S. market.

 

The thing is that my ads are not showing and when I check what is going on with the keyword I get a message like this:

The location terms in this keyword can affect where your ads show. Location: Uruguay

 

Is definitely not want my ads to be shown in Uruguay because I am targeting the US market. Is there anything I am doing wrong? how may I circumvent this issue?

 

Any tip in the right direction will be appreciated,

Thanks a lot!

Hi Yakito,

I think what you want to do here is target Uruguay and set the location to include search intent only and exclude all locations but the US. That should accomplish your goal.

Best of Luck!

petebardo,
How to exclude all locations but the US, do I need to manually enter all Countries but the US?
Thanks.
