Modified Broad catch all

I have a set of keyterms that include the same word (a seed-type word)  twice - there is definitely a more preferred search intent when it appears twice in user search queries

 

When I create the modified broad version of the KWs, by including the term twice ( +seed +seed +other +word ), will the system  require seed word to appear twice in search queries?

Hi

Very good question. I´ve never had a case like that, and don´t know the answer, however I´d think it will treat them as 2 different keywords..
Have you checked your search terms reports, do you have search terms (queries) in it reported like this?

Exactly - shows up in KWs and queries.

Hi Doug, it is indeed an excellent question and not one I've encountered either.

 

I would guess that Google will honour the use of the word twice as there are brand names (Tom Tom springs to mind) and other instances where the double word is quite different from the single.  I presume you're also using Phrase matching as well - "seed seed"?
