Adwords Marketing: Using Negative Keywords
February 6, 2012
How to use Negative Keywords in Google Adwords campaigns
If you run Adwords campaigns for small, locally focused businesses you'll probably have a limited budget. So focusing on people most likely to become customers is vital. One way to do this is to use negative keywords in your Adword set up.
Negative keywords help you zero in on potential customers whilst preventing those people that aren't good prospects from seeing your ad. In essence any negative keyword you add will not trigger your ad in a search containing it.
The same principle applies even if your campaign is not locally focused.
How to add negative keywords to your Adwords campaign
Adding negative keywords to your Adwords campaign is very easy.
Here's how. Scroll to the bottom of the Keywords page of your Adwords campaign, expand the Negative keywords option box and add any words you DO NOT want to trigger your ads. You can use this to manage negative keywords at both ad group and campaign level.
