negative keywords still triggering ads, all match types
Negative keywords added Nov 13 are still triggering my ads. I added [inch] and [inches] which should mean any search containing inch would not be triggered. Today I found [converter mm em inch] as a search term that triggered my ad, the trigger appears to have occurred on Nov 19. This is not the only instance, just an example. I have the keywords in my Shared Library list of negative keywords applied to all of my campaigns.
Is there any way to actually exclude searches with negative keyworda?
Re: negative keywords still triggering ads, all match types
Try adding the negative keyword "inch" with quotations to your shared library negative list. This should add "inch" as a phrase match negative which will block all search terms that contain the word inch. The exact match version [inch] will only block the single search query "inch."
Hope this helps!
