IMO it's not a good thing for Overture's algo to ignore targeted terms and match to other phrases.
Just a heads up to check your logs for suspicious traffic.
"we have a tool called Godzooky that is used when there is no match in Match Driver. Goodzooky uses the first 60% of the listings in the Index (search terms, titles and descriptions) and attempts to find an algorithm. "
So, Overture was running the ad targeted to "thermonuclear widgets" on "common widgets" because the description said "solves problems common in thermonuclear widgets" -- note the inclusion of "common".
