AdWords new matching behaviour: for phrase and exact match keywords

If you’ve been managing an AdWords account this week you’ll probably have noticed a pop-up notification about changes to the way AdWords uses Phrase and Exact match: plurals and misspellings will now be included by default. So what does this mean, and when should you use it?

being relevant: do we need to add search queries?

When analysing the search queries which have been activating your ads, it’s easy to become confused by the depth of strange search queries that Google shows your ads to. Why is the search query ‘football fixtures’ every considered relevant to the keyword ‘rugby socks’? The truth is Google doesn’t directly measure relevancy in the semantic way humans do – it’d just be too complex – how would they know that ‘Usain Bolt’ isn’t related to ‘nuts and bolts’, and that ‘Cheryl Cole’ once was, but is no longer, relevant to ‘Simon Cowell’?
