Exact Keyword Tool
October 31, 2008 5:10 PMThe Exact Keyword Tracking Tool by the folks at ROI Revolution allows paid search advertisers to view the exact search queries of their visitors. Broad-match is one of three Adwords keyword setting that results in ads running based on general keyword terms and what Google believes to be relevant variations; even if these terms aren't in a campaign's keyword lists. With the Exact Keyword Tracking Tool, the exact phrases that triggered the broad-match ad to be issued can be retrieved, instead of only allowing adwords users to view which keyword terms they've bid on drove traffic to their site.
Typically, broad-match phrases are more expensive to bid on than their counterpart's exact-match and phrase-match, due to their higher traffic volumes (and more competition). Utilizing this tool, Adwords managers can discover trends in long tail keyword phrases that would not otherwise be revealed in typical analytics data. With this knowledge, managers can bid on their new-found phrases, probably at lower costs due to the lower volume, detailed orientation of long-tail keywords.
The script for Google Analytics can be found here (note there are two versions: ga.js and urchin.js).
Once the script has been implemented, where will you find this data in Analytics?
1) Traffic Sources > AdWords > AdWords Campaigns report and use the Dimension User Defined dropdown.
2) Using the Visitors > User Defined report.
