/ HOW DOES IT WORK? /
/ QUALITY SCORE /
Google has spent many years adapting and refining the algorithms in both its Paid and Organic systems, in order to serve users relevant and quality content. As such, each ad, in each auction, is subject to a Quality Score. This influences the cost of your ad, and how it will fare in the auctions against your competitors.
In order to get a good Quality Score, and do better on your campaigns, the following needs to be considered:
- Bid- If your bid is too low, you cannot realistically compete in the auction.
- Keyword relevance – The search terms you use to trigger your ads, need to have relevance to your ad, and the landing page. This prevents fraudulent and poor quality ads from misleading users.
- Landing Page Experience – If people arrive on your web page after clicking your ad, and leave almost immediately, your ad will receive a high Bounce Rate. This will inform the Google stem that your landing page is poor, and will decrease your Ad Quality Score. The same will apply to a page that takes too long to load.
- Mobile Friendliness – If your page is not mobile friendly, your Quality Score will be lessened.
