I have added negative keywords rent and rental both phrase and exact match but I continue getting charged for clicks on inquiries that include rent and rental.  Sometimes even the first word has been rent.  I raised this earlier sending screen shots to back this up but got no response from Google support.

Hi Nick,
I would also check that your negatives list is actually applied to the campaign in question.

Hope this helps.

Chewck that the negatives are there and you are looking only at the campaign of ad group they are for.
Check change history to see when you applied them.
Make sure when looking at the search terms report that the dates are after when you added the negatives.

Hi Nick, 

You need to check all the ad groups and the keywords associated with them. You will not receive clicks from negative keywords that you have mentioned, if applied to all ad groups.

I would also add both of the negative keywords as broad match so that way it can ensure to block any other forms of searches containing those keywords. 

Good luck.
