Was just curious if there is such a modifier like the one below:

"+keyword +keyword" 

or just "keyword keyword" and +keyword +keyword?

Hi Weslee,

I have never mixed match types as you described. BMM only works when it is used with broad match keyword by adding +sign. I think if you mix bmm with phrase match, it works as phrase match keyword and ignores the +signs. You need to check search query for these particular keywords to get idea on how this works.

I would strongly suggest not to mix match types.

Thanks

This is a BMM keyword under phrase match, which isn't valid. For this keyword to show ads, a user has to search with + in the search term which is unlikely.

Hope that helps!

Thanks! I asked because it does bring in impressions, clicks and conversions so I was wondering if is even a legit modifier.

I talked to Google and they said that it would work only if the person searching would add a + before their keyword so chances would be slim so best to just stick with "keyword" or +keyword. Just wanted to clarify because I saw someone use it and wanted to know if it was even a real modifier.

Thanks guys!
