Tip: Google Search Analytics Query Filter is Space Sensitive

When analysing queries in Google Search Console use spaces to isolate a word which may be a part of a longer word.

Exact match option is too limiting if you want to list all pr related queries such as “pr agency”.

To solve this problem use spaces before and after your keyword, like this:
