About changes to phrase match and broad match modifier

Google Ads | Updates and New Features
In February 2021, Google Ads began to incorporate behaviours of broad match modifier (BMM) into phrase match.

Google Ads | Updates and New Features
When Google announced that it was expanding phrase match to include broad match modifier traffic earlier this year, it told advertisers that an exact match keyword that’s identical to a query will always take priority, so long as it’s eligible to match.

Google has also revealed that BERT’s language understanding capabilities are now being used to understand the intent of queries and match them to keywords. The natural language processing capabilities BERT brings to…

Google Ads | Updates and New Features
“You can adjust conversion values based on characteristics like location, device, and audience. By applying a rule to these characteristics, you can adjust conversion values to align more closely with your business outcomes,” said Stephen Chang, Product Manager, Google Ads in an announcement. This added feature means that businesses can use their inherent knowledge of what’s working in their industry to improve their conversion rates in Google Ads. For example, if advertisers know certain audiences or people in certain locations are most likely to convert, they can set a rule to multiply the conversion value for the chosen group by two. “These rules will also be used by Maximize conversion value and Target ROAS to optimize your bids in real time.
