I just realized that the keyword data I posted shows a broad match (car+alarm) for the term that we are actually advertising on: wireless alarm system. How broad can Google get?

Great post james. I just implemented this on one of my campaigns. I’ll be interested to see what data I get back in a few hours.

This seems very useful... is it possible to get conversion data for these "hidden" terms?

Great question Chris. The answer is yes, you can get conversion data...I will make a follow up post for that with pictures because I’m a picture kind of guy but here is a stab at it with text:In G Analytics1. Click on Content in the left menu.2. Then click on Top Content.3. Find your conversion page and click on it...you will get a bunch of fantastic stats about that page.4. Underneith the graph that you see for that page there are three drop down menus: Analyze, Content, and Segment.5. Drop down the Segment menu and choose Keyword (third or fourth menu item)...And that is one way to do it if you don’t use Analytics to track "Goals". If you track "Goals" you can see which keywords are bringing visitors half way through your click/sales funnel before they exit...etc. You can optimize for the keyword audience you are looking for. That opens a whole new can of hoopla to go over. :)Remember, content clicks will not show the keyword so the words you see that do not have the (key+word) next to them are probably content network clicks.Enjoy!
