Suppose your selling watches for ladies then our ads should not show up when keywords, like watched for men and watches for kids, are typed as a keyword. (-) is used in front of keywords like – watched for men, – watches for kids. Now, ads would be shown for watches for ladies.
Related to nonorganic ads the main question that comes to mind is
“How is cost/payment determined?”
A bidding system is the set of agreements and understandings assigned to calls and sequences of calls used by a partnership.
Earlier days ads where displayed based on maximum amount competing with other related keywords.

“What rank my ads would get? “Will it be displayed?” are normal questions we get. Here comes AdRank that gives the answer.
Ad Rank: AdWords has been calculated based on Max Bid and Quality Score. Position in which ads are listed based on ad rank. Very low ad rank of an ad indicates that the ad is not displayed.
Your Ad Rank is a score that’s based on your bid, auction-time measurements of expected CTR, CTA, and relevance, landing page experience, and the expected impact of extensions and other ad formats. To improve your ad position, improve the quality score. Greater the quality score lesser the bid, max chance to display at the top.
“ How to find out which keyword or heading etc., will give us more result? “
This can be found out using A/B testing for a small period of time.
Improve your click rate with A/B testing. Comparing two sets of data and fingering out which set of data gives the more profitable result. In ad words, we can compare 2 text ads and find which keywords are more suitable to achieve business goals.
