Google AdWords hack #1: the only way to bulk-modify broad match modified keywords
One AdWords feature I consistently see advertisers struggle with is keyword match types.

I subscribe to the Goldilocks way of thinking for the keywords match types I use most often. Broad match keywords can trigger too much irrelevant traffic. Exact match keywords can severely limit the number of eyeballs on your ads. Broad match modified and phrase match keywords, however, are just right.
