Hello Hello,


since a couple of days now I am not able to find the option to choose between, broad, phrase and exact match search results within the keyword planner.


Do I miss something here ?

Or are the results given by the new Keyword Planner all set to exact match now ?


Thx for any little hint & info !

Hello Bernhard R ! Welcome to the Community


The keywords planner displayed only exact match statistics in the main window. The pencil button was only useful to select the match in which you wanted the selected keywords to be added to the account. For example you could choose 15 keywords and add them in phrase match.


In reference for this there is this article , search for paragraph e.) Match Type Result:


and this help article


"With Keyword Tool, we showed you broad match statistics by default with the ability to get data for other match types, like phrase and exact match. But with Keyword Planner, you'll get historical statistics only for exact match. "


I hope this helps Robot wink
