Hi 

Lets take and example 

  • -"Tennis Shoes" will block your ads searches like "Red Tennis Shoes", "Blue Tennis Shoes" etc.
  • -[Tennis Shoes] Will only block your ads for searches on "Tennis Shoes" and not for any variants as above

Hope this helps

Hi Theniks,

 

Thanks for the reply. My doubt is whether -"tennis shoes" will block searches on [tennis shoes]
