Search query column

Appears in the search terms report. Contains the search terms that a customer searched for, and that matched your keywords and product groups and triggered your ads to appear. 

Once you understand the search terms that trigger your ads, you can update keywords and product descriptions to better match customer intent.

If a search engine encrypts customer searches, the actual search terms that the customer entered are not available to DoubleClick Search (DS). For encrypted searches, you'll see Other queries instead of the search terms.
