The principle of operation add. phrases

  • 1. Yandex analyzes the statistics of your search campaign
  • 2. If the statistics are sufficient, Yandex compares it with its Big Data
  • 3. Yandex algorithms find other key phrases that, according to its data, will be relevant in your advertising campaign
  • 4. New (additional) key phrases are added to the advertising campaign. 


The display of additional phrases will be displayed in the" Parameters "section for each advertising campaign

The danger here is that the Yandex algorithm Doesn't know many details inherent in your business. For example, you have a highly hyped competitor whose name has many requests. Yandex recognizes such requests as additional relevant phrases, but you don't need them at all. 


In case the semantics in your topic are narrow and difficult to collect, you can allow impressions by add. phrases. With a lot of traffic, conversion optimization will be useful: those phrases will be used, clicks on which lead to the implementation of targeted actions on the site
