Hey all,
New Member here ;)

So, recently (last couple months?) I have been seeing 'true' and/or 'false' in the search term column with the intended (or unintended) search term of the user.
ex.:
Little Red Widgets True
or
Large False Blue Widgets

Has anyone else noticed this?
If so, what are they?
Is it possibly G's interpretation of a '+' or '-' sign possibly?

Welcome to the forum!

Martin, a top notch ppc'er, did a little sleuthing and wrote about this on his blog at [ppc-epiphany.com...]

He believes 'true' and 'false' are bugs from Search Partners like Ebay:

The inclusion of parameters like true and false is probably a bug and makes for some strange looking queries.

Ah!

Good to know.
I will have to look at how that traffic converted overall when I'm done doing this months Neg. KWD mining - what fun! (I'm on line 2496 of 26017)

Anyways Thanks!
