Why Adwords says some keywords don't show up?

Hello,

 

When I added few of the keywords as negative keywords, Ad-words says that your few of the keywords are not showing up due to negative keywords that you add.

 

When I check Search term report, keywords which I want to target more are not getting clicks. In this case, How do I get more clicks with my targeted keywords?

 

 

Thanks

John

Hi John,
That's the purpose of negative keywords. If you add a negative keyword, your ads will not show when someone does a search that includes that negative keyword.

To get more clicks/impressions on the keywords that you want to target, make sure they're not added as negative keywords.
