We appreciate your input and feedback on the existing matching behavior. We encourage you to reach out to the support team to help address any issues you may encounter in the immediate term. Our algorithms are continuously learning and working to improve matching quality.
As our algorithms continue to learn, we have observed that close variant performance and quality has significantly improved over the past few months. For many customers, close variants are performing better than canonical match types; we do not have any plans to revert the close variant updates. For those customers that are uniquely impacted by these changes, combining effective negative keyword strategies, use of Broad Match Modifier, and escalating to support are great options to address concerns that may still arise.
