Yahoo Negative Keyword Limit?

 6:50 pm on Apr 11, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hello, I'm an AdWords user and I'm about to expand my PPC efforts over to Yahoo as well. I'm in the process of setting up my first campaign and I'm surprised to see that there is a 250 negative keyword limit on both account and ad group negatives. In my AdWords account I have over 1500 negative keywords and they've really helped reduce the number of unrealted/unwanted clicks. I want to use my same list in Yahoo but I don't know what to do about this limit.

1) Is there anyway around the limit? (Splitting the list between account and ad group would give me 500 but that's still only 33%)

2) Any idea why there's a limit in the first place?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Actually, this is an increase over not terribly long ago. It was 50!

Unfortunately, there's not really much of a way around it without, if possible, splitting your adgroups up into even more focused groups.

ditto on philosopher...
Yahoo, if you are reading this post, please increase this limit!

Keep in mind that Yahoo sees singular and plurals as one in the same. While this won't get your list down to 250 excluded terms, it will help you rethink your list a bit.
