One letter (one character) negative keyword - is it works? How?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

Is it possible to set one letter (one character if you want..) negative keyword?

Is it works?

How?

 

The reason I am interested in it, is because there are a lot of competitors who's name contains one letter. For example: 
"J & D carpet cleaning services" 

"A & G carpet cleaning services"

 

I found that people tend to search for my competitors typing this way:

j d  carpet cleaning services

a g carpet cleaning services

 

So, I am wondering, if I set "j d" as a broad match negative keyword, will it prevent my ads from showing for all queries containing those letters (characters)?

Hi Michael,

 

If you will add broad negative keywords 

j

d

 

it will stop for queries like j cleaning services, d cleaning services, j and d cleaning services. Your ad will still show on queries like jd cleaning services.

 

You can also consider adding

jd - broad

"j and d" - phrase

"j & d" - phrase

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks
