Users Do Not Search For Keywords

In the real world, there is no such thing as a keyword. Keywords are simply a term that internet marketers and Google made up as a way to conceptualize targeting in PPC advertising. Keywords are how Google allows you to choose what real-world searches (called search queries) your ads match to. These search queries may be the same as the keywords you select for your AdWords campaign, though often they are very different.

The difference between the keywords you entered in the AdWords system and the actual search query a user typed, is why even though you have words that customers told you they search for as keywords, you still suffer from a low click through rate and terrible quality scores.
