Our platform works by sending bad IP addresses to the "IP exclusions" list in the active campaigns in your Google Ads account.

We provide support on Google's most popular campaign types, however, Google does not allow IP exclusions in some campaign types so we are unable to block bad users in those campaigns. Here's Google's post about which campaigns they allow IP exclusions.

Fraud Blocker supports IP blocking in these campaign types:

  • Search campaigns

  • Display campaigns

  • Standard Shopping campaigns

Fraud Blocker does not support IP blocking in these campaign types:

As stated earlier, Google does not offer "IP exclusions" in these campaign types so we are unable to block users with these campaign types. We can only monitor the traffic.

  • Performance Max campaigns

  • Demand Gen campaigns (formerly Discovery ads)

  • Smart Shopping campaigns

  • Hotel campaigns

  • Video campaigns (YouTube)

We are also unable to support the campaigns types below as users do not visit your landing page or they do not utilize any tracking methods/parameters:

  • Call-only campaigns

  • "Express" campaigns

  • Local campaigns

  • Mobile App campaigns
