Keywords Conflict

[ Edited ]

Hello All,

 

I am facing a problem and am 100% sure will get solution here.

 

Two adgroups are there in my campaign for exactly same keywords in different match types:

 

1) Adgroup Broad Match : All keywords associated with this adgroup are in Broad Match types.

2) Adgroup Exact Match : All keywords associated with this adgroups are in Exact Match type.

 

Now Under Keyword diagnosis tool I see a warning:

 

Suppose For Keyword: contact adwords

 

Adgroup Broad: contact adwords (This keyword is triggering other ads with a similar keyword: [contact adwords] > Campaign> Adgroup - Exact Match

 

To resolve conflict I added [contact adwords] as negative at adgroup level in Adgroup Broad Match.

 

Now Warning chaged to Negative Keyword [contact adwords] is stopping your ads to trigger.

 

Smiley Sad I have been using negative keywords at adgroup level since long but never seen this kind warning before. 

 

The solution i see is that to create a seperate campaign for match types but i don wanna do this. Please suggest!

 

Thanks

Neha

Hi NehaGupta,

 

The campaign is performing the way it should be and you don't really have any problem at all.

 

Your exact netative is preventing the keyword diagnosis tool from showing your keyword in the broad campaign due to the exact negative match is is using to test it.

 

Your broad match will be triggering on a lot of other terms but not the exact match query.

 

If you edit the query in the ad preview and diagnosis tool (when run from the keyword speech bubble) you should be able to see your broad match being triggered.

 

I hope this helps

Thanks Purefuzz for the prompt response! So, I do not need to worry at all and i can use negative keywords at adgroup level like am doing?

 

Edit: It may be coz now keywords trigger ads for near exact and phrase match queries too?

Hey Adam,

 

I am still facing the problem. Actually I am seeing the warning

No
A negative keyword ([contact adwords]) is preventing your ad from showing. What can I do?
QS 7
And when I see search query, Under column Added/Excluded it's showing both Added Excluded, Please see the screenshot...

 
Thanks
