Exclude By Domain

Specify websites where you don't want your ads to show. For example, you may want to exclude websites that don't fit your brand or aren't helping you sell your products or services.

Set Up Domain Exclusions

  1. Click the Settings gear icon in the left navigation menu.

  2. Scroll down and click By Domain under Exclusions.

  3. Enter the websites that you want to exclude with only one per line. To exclude apps that are a part of the Facebook Audience Network, add the iTunes Store and Google Play app URL. You can exclude up to 250,000 websites.

    We use an implicit leading wildcard for all domains you enter. For example, if you enter acme.com, we’ll exclude all domains that match *.acme.com. See below for examples.
