Both Content Match and Advanced/Standard Match settings are at all three tiers of account management: Account, Campaign and Ad Group. Of course Account Settings will trump the others, but you may want to double check that your settings are in order. If this continues to be a problem, try doing some sort of keyword tagging with an analytics program to determine which keyword is bringing this increased traffic!

Thanks, i see I had to change the campaign level too. This is why this board is the best.
edit: ok hmm, I change it, and when I check it is changed back....

You can choose the "Direct match" at the keyword level. Try that too, I found differences in traffic using this.

I have been seeing a very similar thing with one of my keywords, getting 400 impressions a day in Google and 10k impressions per day in yahoo. When I spoke to Yahoo they claimed it was due to a different profile of users using Yahoo as opposed to Google, which I find hard to swallow to be honest!
I have also enabled standard matching and have content in a separate campaign but they seem to have made little or no difference. This is driving me mad so if anyone has any other advice it would be greatly appreciated!

Your problem is, you are using Yahoo!

Goldilox, Brgidere is correct. The only solution at this point is to shut off that term. I have spoken to Yahoo and my rep confirmed this.
