More Transparency In Quality Score

on April 25, 2012

As posted on the Inside AdWords blog, there is now greater transparency to Google’s Quality Score system. That is, when a keyword is hovered over in the AdWords interface, in addition to seeing the quality score, you can also see how it is performing on three levels: expected click-through rate, ad relevance and the landing page experience. Compared to other advertisers you can now get a sense of performance being above or below average.

The additional information doesn’t affect how Quality Score or Ad Rank are calculated, but it gives a good starting point when diagnosing keywords with a low Quality Score. The remains to be some mystery around the impact of account-level and non-Keyword factors that may still affect Quality Score as well as the nature of different search verticals.
