Google Adwords provides 3 options for “Keywords” to serve the ads on Google
Search & Search Network : •
Broad Match – This is a default option. If ad group contained the keyword Flight Tickets Online,
ad would be eligible to appear when a user's search query contained tickets and flight. For
example, ad might show on air tickets and Air India Flights.
Phrase Match - If advertiser enter keyword in quotation marks, as in “Air Tickets" ad would be
eligible to appear when a user searches on the phrase Air Tickets, in this order, and possibly with
other terms before or after the phrase. For example, ad could appear for the query cheap air
tickets but not for air plane tickets.
Exact Match – In this option, advertiser should ad keywords in brackets – [air tickets] then ad
would be eligible to appear when a user searches for the specific phrase air tickets without any
other word in the query. This match is highly beneficial at the Purchase level of buying cycle.
Negative Match - If keyword is flight tickets and you add the negative keyword –air deccan, your
ad will not appear when a user searches on air deccan flight tickets. Negative keywords are
especially useful if account contains lots of broad-matched keywords.
Display URL must match with landing page URL in the ad as per the new Google policy on landing
