Hi Martha L,

It's good that you are thinking of adding negative keywords in your campaign, it's hard to guess suggestions. May be you can add some most general negatives such as cheap, used, cheapest, free etc.

As you are the best person to guess negatives for your website, Since you know what audience to target and whom to weed out by adding negative. I would advice you to look at search query report to find out the negatives.

Search Query Report:

Apart from this you can add these keywords and some more variations in keyword planner tool and look for terms which are not useful and can be added as negative.

You can also look at opportunities tab where you may find some keywords suggestions to add as positive, but you might find some keywords which can be added as negative.

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have more questions!

Hi Martha,


I agreed with Neha. This is the best way to find out negative keywords.


I think there is another way to find out negative keywords. Just go to & type your search (llike you said your are searching negative keywords for "social entreprise"  and "venture capital") after your search give space then google give you some suggestions. In which, you can find some postitive & negative keywords. 


This will help you to find out positive & negative keywords for your website. Check out screenshot for more help.
