Use Negative Keywords to Make a Positive Impact on Your Pay-Per-Click Campaign
When running any type of online pay-per-click (PPC) ad campaign, most business professionals spend a lot of time planning their keywords. They know what phrases customers use to find them, and they make sure their site is findable with those specific search terms. Unfortunately, these same keyword-savvy businesspeople often miss one important element of pay-per-click keywords: Defining negative keywords. In other words, they fail to spell out how they do not want customers to find them.

“Wait a minute,” you may be thinking. “Why would I want someone not to find me? I want all the Web traffic I can get.” While you certainly do want lots of Web traffic, even more important is getting the right Web traffic. Negative keywords help you accomplish that.

Negative or “excluded” keywords are the list of search terms under which you do not want to show up in search results. Google AdWords, Yahoo! Paid Search and MSN AdCenter all offer you the option of selecting “negative” or “excluded” keywords to add to your account.
