Keyword Tool

I like to use the keyword tool to look for negatives. But sometimes, when I don't have "Only show ideas closely related to my search terms" selected, I'll get keyword ideas that don't have any of the words in them that my original phrase has. For instance, I enter in "northern michigan cadillac", and several of the keyword ideas are variations of "overhead garage door". I'm wondering if, based on this, I can expect the broad matched keyword "northern michigan cadillac" to show an ad for searches for "overhead garage door".

Hi xenophone,


It really doesn't sound likely. Use the Ad Preview and Diagnostics tool to find out.


Best of Luck!
