Matching Types

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I have been an AdWords professional for 10+ years and I stumbled upon a keyword matching type that I had never seen before.

I just received a new account to audit yesterday and there are multiple keywords that have the # symbol in front of them. They have tremendous amounts of data and was wondering if this is in fact a new match type that is still in beta?

Try selecting one of those keywords when running a search term report.  See how it matches to actual search queries.
