Hi Guys,

 

I have analyze search term report every week to find relevant and irrelevant keywords. The issue is that some keywords is very very irrelevant and very long term i think these are fake or automated clicks and that happens every week. I see 3-4 keywords with different variations every week. So any idea what is going on with my account please let me ? and also suggest me solution for this issue. My Campaigns keywords match type is Phrase.  

 

Each Keyword have following metrics:

 

Clicks - 1

Impr. - 1

CTR - 100%

 

Keywords:

 

1. chevrolet silverado 2014 chevrolet silverado 2500hd lt duramax diesel 4x4 vancouver greater vancouver area cars &amp vehicles ca
2. chevrolet silverado 2500 hd ac delco egr vacuum solenoid direct fit egr vacuum solenoid egr vacuum solenoid

Hi @Pavan R;

Broad match keywords have an endless list of synonyms which can be matched to a search query.

Form your questions, it seems to me that the case is the keyword match types, and not invalid clicks.

Hi Pavan,

 

For the Phrase match type keywords, you should understand that AdWords system is going to target phrases and the close variations to them as well based on what keywords you are bidding upon.

 

In case you feel like long keywords are not relevant to what you are targeting, try adding more restrictive match type i.e. exact match type and see what happens. The idea is to keep experimenting and finding the real niche.

 

Google uses sophisticated tools and techniques to take care of invalid clicks. In case AdWords support identify the clicks, they credit the amount back into the advertisers' account. Still if you feel something wrong happening, you can ask for click investigation:- https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/2557048?hl=en

These look like search terms from the Google Search Partners segment. In this case to avoid them you can disable Search Partners from your campaign .

Hi Guys,

 

Thanks for your response but other thing is that no one search this type of very long and invalid keywords. Please also see keywords metrics.

 

My Question is:

 

1. Does user interested to type or search this type of very long and invalid keyword ?

 

Each Keyword have following metrics:

 

Clicks - 1

Impr. - 1

CTR - 100%

 

Thanks,

Pavan
