Under "keywords to find targets" for, is there any way to delineate muitple KWs?

Spintax? Something else??

    That keyword is taken exactly as written (per entry).

    Using (keyword1|keyword2|keyword3) might work on google as this is a logical OR for google, but not work for other search engines like bing. So it's better to keep it simple by using only simple keywords one per line.

    To clarify, b/c I was unclear...

    Let's say I want KWs:

    "Doberman puppies"
    hairless cats

    how would that be entered on a single line??

    {dogs|"Doberman puppies"|hairless cats}

    Would that work??

    Just so I am clear:

    If I Check URL must contain


    use [X] red
          [X] green
          [X] blue


    will Website Contact send any URLs NOT containing EITHER "red," green," or "blue" to the Filtered list?

    Just unclear..I ascertain that the logic is OR, not AND for multiple entries. Seems elementary, but can't guess anything anymore! :pI know Sven basically said this above, just trying to be 100% sure!

    Any of the items has to match. If you need just one match, enter it with |

    [x] red
    [x] green
    [x] blue
    ====> all items/colours have to be in the URL to be accepted

    [x] red|green|blue
    ====> just one of the items/colours has to be in the URL to be accepted
