Hi, 

 

Are you running in stream or discovery TrueView ad?

 

Also, are the keywords set to broad phrase or exact match?

Hi Abhinav,

 

Since keyword targeted are in broad, they can trigger other keywords as well, even for those which you are not targeting.

Hi Abhinav,

 

like any other targeting method on GDN, keywords work collectively to create a theme which  is matched (using contextual targeting ) to the content of a page/ YouTube channel; Thus, only broad match would work.
