Quick Tip: Using Negative Keywords in Google AdWords Campaigns

Are you currently using negative keywords in your Google AdWords campaigns?

Negative keywords are essential for refining your keyword lists. If your goal is to generate qualified leads and not just traffic, negative keywords help you filter out unwanted impressions, thus reaching more targeted prospects.

By adding a negative keyword, your ad will not show for searches containing that term. They can be applied on a campaign or ad group level. You also have the option to use negative keywords with the Google Display Network, which works slightly different.

    If you're not using negative keywords, you should be. It's an eye opening experience to see how many people could be searching for something completely different than what you offer, even though they are using the same keyword.
