Google keyword planner - adding spaces to words

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have recently uploaded a large keyword list in Thai to keyword planner to obtain more up to date search data. However, when downloading the results I noticed that all the keywords now appeared with spaces between the characters which had not been there at upload. This makes the words incorrect in Thai. 


Any suggestions on why this is happening, and how to prevent it?

Hi @Katherine P,


I repeated what you did in English and the download from The Keyword Planner went to an AdWords Editor csv file. It worked out fine and no issue was experienced with spaces. Look at this:




Did you try to download data from the Keyword Planner to AdWords Editor CSV or alternatively to Excel CSV? (Excel may not support Thai.)

Thanks Lakotas. I can't remember how the data was downloaded last time but will give your suggestion a try and see if it works. Fingers crossed and thanks for your help.
