No, you cannot do that. The only variant of the traditional broad match, "phrase" match and [exact] match keyword bid types is usage of the broad match modifier which you may want to look into. Why can't you just use:- "keyword keywordOr1" "keyword keywordOr2" [keyword keywordOr1] [keyword keywordOr2] Surely that achieves what you're trying to?

You will still get clicks even if you don't appear on the first page. The tool is correct -- you will still get some clicks if you bid low.

Yes, first you need to define a conversion. Easiest way to do it without custom programming is to define URL Conversions.

Your landing URL from your campaign is not ideal for Google Analytics tracking. I would recommend using the Google Analytics URL builder to add parameters to the URL. Specifically source=CPC would become utm_source=CPC. Google Analytics also likes it when you have other fields like the campaign name. When this tracking is in place, your campaign ...
