Karooya’s Negative Keywords Tool is one step towards saving your ad spend. We do a deep analysis of your Google Ads accounts to identify and block single and multi-word phrases that are performing poorly.

More about our Negative Keywords Tool

With our tool you can pull the lid off the areas that are resulting in wasted ad spend and are driving poor quality traffic to your campaign. With the recommended negative keywords you can reduce 15-20% of your wasted ad spend.

How we recommend the negative keywords?

We do statistical analysis of the search terms and their historical performance, before generating the negative keyword recommendations.

Karooya uses the n-gram technique to break down large volumes of data into segments or themes and compare performance at various aggregation levels. 

The poorly performing themes are grouped as negative keyword recommendations.  It is to help advertisers focus on the high impact item first and keep away all the noise (i.e terms with low volume).  

Karooya’s recommendation engine takes n-gram analysis to the next level by also including close variants in the process.

Different tabs in our Negative Keywords Dashboard

We group the recommended negative terms under different tabs to make it easy for review. We discuss about each of these tabs below:

Recommended negatives – These are 1-grams with an additional constraint – i.e. these terms are not part of any of your targeting keywords. These words appeared along with some of your target keywords. 

Multi-Word negatives – Lists all the multi-word search themes that are performing poorly. 

Similar Negatives – Lists search themes that are similar to the existing negative keywords in your account. 

Must Add Negatives – It displays a list of top offending search themes that you should take a look at the first. These are list of highly recommended terms, as they have significantly used the ad spend and have been poorly performing. Terms with less than 5 conversions have been listed here.

Campaign Negatives – Your negative keywords will reflect in Campaign Negatives if added from Must-Add Negatives, Recommended Negatives , Similar Negatives, Multi-Word Negatives tabs.

You can see details of when the keyword was added and also how it had been performing. This information can help you to review your negatives in future. The Syn Status column here, shows the status of your negative keyword in your account. The column will show error if failed. You can click on the x sign to remove the negative keyword from your account.
