How can I see modified broad match results/options?

[ Edited ]

Is there a tool I can use to see what alternatives to a single word google matches?

 

I'd like to not have keywords that were overlapping, and more importantly I don't want to think that google will match a synonym of a modified broad match, but have it not.

 

example. For the word +automobile I can assume that the keyword car would be matched, but how do I know if truck will be matched? How about if I do +{car manufacturer} will it match to Ford and General Motors? How about +{Ford Motors} - does that match to General Motors?

 

Is there a tool that can show you what the matches are?

 

Thanks!

Hello FlorianM;

The broad match modified (+ before the keyword ) does not include synonyms.

However please note that  you cannot combine various matches for a keyword (e.g +[Ford motors]) - it just doesn't have any meaning.

Thanks for sorting that out. I've seen various examples of how to use it across the web. What about +{New York} ?

Obviously the examples I've seen are wrong. So for New York you use +New +York.

 

Thanks

Yep;

And that will cover  the following formats:  "new York", "New yorker" "new yorking" (?- is there), "newer yorker" (? -If this form existed.)
