I Can Find How To Change From Broad To Phrase Match
Posted 22 April 2010 - 11:03 AM
I have 100 keywords.
I'd like to do this in their convouted interface -- not have to deal with adwords editor which is even more convoluted and difficut to understand. thanks!
My campaign is paused until someone can help me!
PS I have adwords editor for another account. this issue is with new account, my other account comes up in adwords editor, I don't see a way to change acconts there. Should I download another copy of adwords editor for the the account? Is this intentional on Googles part. That they defalt everything to broad match, and the interface is viturlaly impossible to figure out how to change all 100 keywords to phrase of exact match. I'm pausing the campagin till someone can help me. I'm so flustured.

You can do this in notepad but it would be a bit laborious. Some text editors are more efficient. I use the vim text editor and the commands you would need to add quotes (for phrase match) to the beginning and end of each line are:
To add square brackets (for exact match), it would be:
