Broad phrase impression

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am using broad phrases in my adwords group which are getting lots of impressions but very low clicks. Is there any way to see all the impressions search terms?


I can see the search terms after getting clicks in the Keyword details > All, but this is not helping me to control the impressions. I also tried to look this under webmaster tool > search queries but I think this is only for the organic listings.


Can you please help me to understand this?


Thanks in advance

Hello there;

Unless you are in a niche market - I would not use the broad match and switch Broad Match Modifier;

As you have already noticed, the broad match "generates" a lot of impressions but relatively low clicks. And the reason is the "endless" list of synonyms "under" a broad match keyword. These synonyms could be irrelevant to your business but still can be matched with a search query and trigger an ad (impression)
