Splitting keywords by word

Splitting a keyword by individual words means that one keyword becomes two:

  • a specified word is added into one of the keywords;
  • another specified word is added to the other keyword as a negative keyword.

Example

If you split the keyword “buy matches” by the word “price”, then you will have the keywords “buy matches price” and “buy matches -price”.
