A rather amateur question on keywords.

Advanced apologies but my brother and I have a small roofing company and a friend has set up the campaign for me. I'm a bit concerned though as there are barely any keywords and one is, for example, +roof+repair.

 

Could someone explain what the + symbol is for as I've not come across it and wasn't sure if it's a good or a bad thing.

 

Again sorry for what is probably a very basic question for most of you.

Hi Richard,
the + before a keyword is called "broad match modifier" and it means that this keyword has to be in the search query. You should leave space between keywords, so you keyword should be
+roof +repair
an no +roof+repair
