No.  AdWords Express is designed to automate the keyword selection process for you.  You can deselect keywords Google's algorithms are choosing for your site, but you cannot select your own specific keywords.

 

As someone who does a lot of manual keyword selection for large accounts, I am often surprised at the accuracy AdWords Express demonstrates for most businesses.  However, if your business is in a unique, narrow niche or provides a narrowly-targeted service or product, AdWords Express may not be the best tool.

 

Have you had poor performance with the default keywords with your ads so far?
