Google recently altered the way Quality Score is reported for each ad. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Quality Score, it is basically Google’s way of rating your ads. The score takes into consideration several factors including the ad’s written copy, landing page, and its relevancy to the subject matter. This score is important–it ends up affecting the placement of your ads and how much you ultimately pay for the ad served.
Previously, you got one Quality Score that took into consideration all aspects of your ad. From here on out, you’ll be served with three different scores: expected clickthrough rate, ad relevance, and landing page experience. Not everything will change, though. The rating will still be a number from 0-10 and there will be no difference in the way it is calculated.
Another difference is the way in which the data is displayed. Currently, this information is displayed in a vague “poor, average, good” format, which gives you little insight into what factor is keeping your score down. This new way of displaying the data shows which of the three major elements of your ad could be improved to get you closer the coveted perfect 10 rating.
