API / Website Report Inconsistencies. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am downloading a report using the API and comparing it to the web based reports, but I can't seem to match the data up.


    Say we have "keyword1".

    On the web stats it will list it with "Exact" and "Broad" match, but on the API, it will list
    "Exact", "Phrase" and "Broad"

    Also the data for Broad (web), matches Phrase (api).

    Its as if Broad data has been put into the Phrase, and Phrase has been dropped.

  • upon further investigation, it looks like Phrase and Broad keywords (API) are being added together to make Broad keyword (Web) costs.

    Is it the case that the API is more accurate than the web based reports?
