Negative keywords question.
Example, I have this keyword "chicken automatic door", if I add "automatic door" as a Negative keyword, does it conflict with my keyword? does it disable my keyword? what about negative keywords like "door" and "chicken"?
Re: Negative keywords question.
It all depends on the match type. A keyword such as "chicken automatic door" is blocked by -"automatic door", but not by -[automatic door]. The former blocks any search terms containing "automatic door" in this order, while the latter only blocks one single search query: "automatic door". If the search term contains anything extra, the exact match negative keyword will not block it.
However, more recently AdWords started showing, in the Ad Preview Tool, if a targeted keyword is blocked by a negative one.
