Can I run a partial phrase keyword for e.g. +Hotel +Deals "KR Puram"

 

To avoid locality name conflicting with each other.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks,

Aditya

Hi Aditya,

You must choose modified broad or phrase, they cannot be combined. I would actually suggest testing both. I''m not sure what you mean by "to avoid locality name conflicting with each other", though. Could you elaborate your concerns there?

Best,
Amy

*when I say that I would suggest testing both, I mean as separate keywords. Sorry, I realize that may not have been clear.

Hi Aditya,

 

Welcome to AdWords Community.

 

The answer is - NO.

 

You cannot use partial phrase/exact match keyword. Secondly, when you use modifiers with your keywords, they have to be Broad Match. That'swhy they are called Broad Match Modifier (BMM).

 

Now, as solution to conflicting/similar locality names, you can use it this way -

 

hotel deals +kr +puram

 

Yes in your case, it is better to use modifiers for geo terms, not to the seed keywords. 

 

Thanks
