Another advertising tip here, and a question. With a lack of review services, ppc is all the more important. I hear that in the US, they recently started 3 types; broad, phrase and exact. In the Japanese back end there is only broad. If someone had seen a way to change this, please let me know! The keyword column has “broad” written at the top, so I assume that Amazon japan will add the others at some point. What I have found is that using keyword groups, basically “phrases” has been very effective. For those who have started selling, give 2 word combinations a try and let us know if it works for you too.

Can people selling in the other marketplaces tell me if they also have the other keyword types?
