Hi Vishal,

The terms *Ad-Words* and *AdWords* are the same keywords because the dash is ignored by the system.

Hi Vishal,

It is not clear what you mean by a "conflict". If you wish to add either of the above 2 keyword lists, you are free to do so. (I cannot see the point, though.) Another note is that most of the available impressions will be eliminated by the negatives in both scenarios.

Best,
Lakatos

Does Google consider '-' (Hyphen) or it just eliminates it.
