Broad match mapping the old product name.

We have a product , lets say by name "B" Currently, this product was named ";A" before. This keyword "B" is now used as a broad match keyword and it still attracts search queries of "A" . Can anybody provide me with a link that explains whythis happens . I am aware that the close variants are mapped under broad keywords but is there any other explaination at all?

Hi Ashiya

To my knowledge there is no other explanation than the one you already mentioned. If A is similar to B and you have set B with the broad match type, then B will also attract searches with the keyword A. For more control over the keyword B use the broad match modifier ('+' in front of the keyword), and/or phrase match and/or exact match. You also could use A as a negative word in the adgroup/campaign for the keyword B.

A nice explanation about broad match is to be found here:
