Hi CAiello835,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

You can not add neagtive keywords with one of the following conditions :

 

Condition 1 : Keywords which is more than 80 Characters

Condition 2 : Keywords which is more than 10 words.

 

Now if you want to add neagtive keywords which is too long try to shorten them by using phrase match or broad match keywords and then add it to your negative list.

 

 

For Example : Suppose you find a search term like this "free home delivery resturents in atlanta" & you do not provide any home delivery services.So you may not be  interested to show your ads to those people.Now instead of adding whole the seaech term as negative you can only add phrase match negative -"free home delivery".so your ads will not appear for any search term which is associated with free home delivery.

 

 

Hope it helps.

 

 

Thanks,
