Hello,

 

It's not necessary to add whole query as a negative keyword if there are limitations in terms of character limit. Rather you can identify the core search term (out of the long search query) which could give rise to number of other irrelevant terms as per your business and include that term as negative keyword at ad group or campaign level depending upon what is best.

You could also think of adding that term in exact, phrase or broad match type as negative based on the permutation/combination of search terms which makes more sense.

 

Just a thought!
