Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I would also like to be able to filter by extension AWA. I keep getting .RU domains and visits from other countries extensions that I am not interested in having my ads on their web sites. I understand that the Russian site might be found in the US index but as a rule I would just like to exclude .RU sites. Perhaps this is something that the Adwords Team can do?
1) Have a look in your raw logs. Some log analysis tools have the ability to filter on the Google Content network. If not, I think you can filter on googlesyndication.com. From there you can pick out the sites that you may wish to exclude.
2) You can have a look at the placement performance report in your AdWords account. I always export to Excel and sort according to sites with the most impressions and least clicks.
I'm already doing that, and have automated it to some degree. What I am trying to do is find lists of sites that have high traffic and low CTRs so that I can hopefully not show up there in the first place. It's therefore not so much the ones that send me clicks but the ones that don't!
Any idea? I read on a forum that it could be a good idea to exclude the FacespaceTubes of this world, and wondered if anyone had any good ideas like that?
No problem at all. I wish AdWords would give you the ability to sort according to multiple columns and this is why I export to Excel.
This report can also be useful for Site Targeted campaigns.
