4) Use Broad Match Modifiers

By using broad match modifiers you can easily target the intention of the searcher. Example – if you want to target a searcher who is looking for discounts on jewelry then you can use broad match modifier “+Diamond +Jewelry +discounts”. You need to have good quality score for this technique to work.

5) Test Ad Copies Manually Using Different Scheduling Settings
