Create the campaign criteria

Performance Max campaigns support the following types of criteria:

Both positive and negative criteria can be used.

For location targeting, a campaign with no specified location or location groups defaults to including all regions.

Negative WEBPAGE criteria can be used to exclude specific URLs from final URL expansion.
