Keyword Planner - Do Exact Match Estimates Include Close Variants?

Quick question -
Do exact match estimates in Keyword Planner factor in close variants?  Or are they still a "true" exact match?

 

Thanks!

Hi Mary,

 

Great question. The keyword planner will build estimates on the same principles used for match-types. Because exact match shows your ad to customers who are searching for your exact keyword, or close variants, the planner tool will factor this in as well.

 

As a caveat, while the keyword planner is a useful estimation tool for volumes it should not be taken as a source of absolute truth in planning your campaigns.

Thanks - that's what I thought, just couldn't find it spelled out anywhere.
