Last week I was fortunate to enjoy the company and tutelage of some talented web marketers at the Search Engine Strategies conference in San Jose. An annual occurrence, the San Jose conference is one of those particularly special events that I aim never to miss. On top of the incredible networking and party events such as the Google Dance and the Search Bash there were a great number of exceptional seminars on all facets of web marketing. In this case I would like to highlight my notes from a seminar in the paid advertising track titled "Ads in a Quality Score World".
What is Quality Score?
"Quality Score is a dynamic variable assigned to each of your keywords. It's calculated using a variety of factors and measures how relevant your keyword is to your ad text and to a user's search query." ... "Quality Score influences your ads' position on Google and the Google Network. It also partly determines your keywords' minimum bids. In general, the higher your Quality Score, the better your ad position and the lower your minimum bids." source: Google's AdWords Help Center.
Now that you know how important quality score is to the effectiveness and bottom dollar of a pay per click campaign it begs the question... how is quality score measured and how can you enhance your own to improve return on investment? That very question was the topic of the "Ads in a Quality Score World" session. After most of the presenters repeated the quality score factors outlined on this informative Google AdWords help page they provided some very helpful tips for the audience. The following is a list of the top 10 tips I took note of during the session:
