Adding the right term as a negative keyword helps control when your ad gets triggered. If you haven’t yet reviewed your search terms for such keywords, then now is the time.

Negative keywords are those terms that help in refining your targeting to a more relevant audience. So, you exclude these keywords from driving irrelevant traffic to your business.


It helps in the following:

  • Improves ad performance by bringing in relevant clicks
  • Increase chances of a higher ROI as the audience is likely to convert
  • Reduces cost incurred on unwanted clicks
  • Saves the budget from getting depleted and being allotted for relevant searches

Note: Negative keywords are supported in Sponsored Product Ads as well as in Sponsored Brands
