This support guide provides instructions on how to use Microsoft Ads audience tags to set up audience exclusion. The purpose of this guide is to help you prevent invalid accesses from being included in your campaigns.
We recommend setting exclusions here for all campaigns, as Spider AF will automatically update audiences for invalid users. Although the population of the audience will be updated automatically, the exclusion audiences will need to be applied manually to existing and new campaigns.
How to set up
First, publish an audience tag to collect invalid accesses with Spider AF. You can refer to the following article for guidance on how to issue audience tags in Microsoft Ads.
