 (1) Placement targeting
 When setting the URL "" on "allow" or "exclude"
 of Placement targeting, the setting will become ineffective.
 Please confirm and add the new URL "" to the setting
 of Placement targeting.
 - Updating Placement list can be done by PlacementUrlListService.

  action is required.
 - When specifying the second layer such as ""
  or "", please specify the new URL such as
  "" on the setting.
 Note that specifying the second layer of new URL will not be effective
 to discriminate between "allow" and "exclude" due to common use of the
 second layer after this change.
