How to add a keyword for a app install

Hi all,

 

I have an app install display network only campaign running, lets say in theory my app is a rival to another popular app, I would like to add the other apps name as a keyword to my campaign, first off is this allowed?, and secondly I believe I found the correct place to add the keyword, however I received the message: "This operation is not supported by this campaign"

 

Just to clarify, when a user performs a search in the playstore, I'm wanting my app to show up under this keyword. Is this possible with this campaign and how can I do it?

Well... This should  work... Can you upload a screenshot?

I also tried creating a search network only campaign, and that had no issue with adding keywords, so perhaps display network does not support this?

Interesting...

Remove the keyword and try a different one
