Allow negative radius targeting OR introduce city level targeting for more markets
Advertisers who do business outside the US/CA/UK have a hard time if they want to exclude locations on city level. It is only possible to exclude predefined locations. Since there are no predefined city level locations in markets such as Germany or Italy, it would be very helpful if advertisers at least had the option to exclude a radius.

Just give me negative radius targeting with the same limits as regular targeting (up to 500 miles). I need to exclude about half of the state of Texas. This can be done with a few radius targets (about 15 minutes), but I have been told by support that the only solution is to target each city as a exclusion. This does not cover the entire area and would be an enormous amount of research and effort to complete. I'm surprised that this feature isn't already available.
Hi Sabeshan. I have just tried to exclude "25 km around Marseille" (Marseille is a city in France) and it does not work. It is impossible to exclude any radius geotargeting. Please, fix it.
Thanks for your feedback. Do you mind sharing any particular cities that you are interested in using city targeting for?
