    If you want to add some keywords into multiple groups or different keywords into different groups, you can do this in the Keyword Phrases box by:

    • Add a keyword, followed by a semicolon, then the keyword group name.
    • Add the same keyword to multiple groups by following each keyword group name with a semicolon and then another group name.
      • Example: “keyword; Group Name” or “keyword; Group Name 1; Group Name 2”.

    adding to multiple groups

    When you click the Add Keywords button, all these phrases will appear in the Keyword Phrases table. You can use this table to create, edit, and manage your keyword groups.
