What is Broad Match?

Broad match definition: broad match is a keyword option offered by PPC advertising platforms; it is the default option in Google Adwords.

Broad match enables pay-per-click (PPC) adverts to target relevant variations of a keyword, such as:

  • Synonyms
  • Possible misspellings
  • Singular forms
  • Plural forms

This can increase the potential audience a PPC advert can reach.

  • Broad match keywords:
    • Travel headphones
    • Best wireless headphones
    • Headphones with Bluetooth
    • AirPods alternative
