Negative keywords issue

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I recently added some negative keywords ( just words, not phrases ) to 2 campaigns.


I want to stop paying for clicks relating to people searching for jobs. So the two negatives I used are job & jobs.

They are negative broad match.


But I still find that the top earner for Google from my account are people entering actual search terms that contain the words job or jobs. This is mystifying. Am I doing something wrong ?


I do not have any keywords or phrases containing the word job in these two campaigns.

Where did you add your negatives:
a) ad group level
b) campaign level
c) shared library negative keyword list

When did you add them and and what was the date range of your search terms report?
