Marketers and Google Adwords


#1

I seem to be getting a large number of “marketers” that are clicking my Google ads just in an attempt to then reach out to us and sell us marketing services like “hey, you’re doing google ads, why not have us help you with SEO instead?”. 

Does anyone have any hints around avoiding “spammers”?

Have you set your adwords campaign to only show certain geographical area’s? Excluding places like India etc. can help stop that.

I have this same issue and I work with my PPC team to block these types of clicks.

Hard to prevent them from clicking the first time, unless you have some very specific geographic or intent based keywords. We do a sweep about once a month and I’ve seen a decrease in spam clicks.

This is a huge help, Stuart!
