Contextual targeting by TOPIC EXAMPLE

Let's imagine again that you want to show ads about gourmet cookies using AdWords. You could add the sub-topic Food & Drinks> Cooking & Recipes > Baked Goods to your ad group. This would help you target all pages about cooking and recipes on the Google Display Network related to cookies, regardless of whether your exact keywords appear on the page.

Contextual targeting by Keyword Example

Suppose you've created an ad group to advertise gourmet cookies, and it includes keywords like "dark chocolate chip cookies" and "nutella chocolate chip cookies." We use contextual targeting to identify and place your ad on Google Display Network sites that share the same themes. That means that your ad might appear on webpages about gourmet chocolate desserts, discussion groups for baking enthusiasts, or a newsletter about dessert recipes

How can you add exclusions to improve your contextual targeting? What Type of Exlusions can be made

• From within ad group or campaign, can do two things:
1.Exclude specific sites or types of sites
---don't want ads to appear on,
•Competitor sites 
•Low conversion rate sites
•Websites that aren't appropriate for your audience or ads.
2. Exclude many pages about a specific topic at once.
