Ad Relevance

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

One of my keywords always has a low Quality Score of 3 and when I move over the speech bubble it says Ad Relevance: Below Average. I believe my keyword is related to my ad and I even use it in the add text. If someone was to search for that keyword it would provide a relevant result. What am I doing wrong?

It´s true relevance increases if you have the keyword in your ad text. But, quality Score is a complicated thing. To give you a a good answer I need to know: a) what does the other lines of the speech bubble say? b) what match type is this keyword?

Hello symlux3;


In addition to David's answer; please note that if it is a new keyword , the QS given is an average QS of other advertisers, until you reach 1000 impressions and start to get clicks for your ad.

Hi

I guess the system wont adjust so quickly at such a low volume. Please let us know what has happened after another 2 weeks, or another 1000 impressions.

The other lines in the speech bubble are all in the green. Expected clickthrough rate: Average and Landing page experience: Average. The keyword is set on broad match and on an average day we may get 30 impressions for 3 clicks.

The keyword has been running for about 6 months now but the QS has always stayed low.

Hi again symlux3;

Just to confirm: You are getting 30 impressions for this KW and 3 clicks - meaning an average CTR of 10% during the last 6 months, and still, the QS is low?

symlux3;

This is strange.....The only  reason I can think of, is that the keyword is totally irrelevant to the content on your landing page.

It´s a little strange, but if other advertisers are getting even higher CTR for this keyword (or those search queries), it´t not that strange, as an advertisers QS most probably is set relatively other advertisers.

But my guess is that, because you are having a broad match keyword,  you may get impressions at a few relevant search queries, and for which you have a high CTR (>10). But then you also  get impressions at a bunch of rather irrelevant search queries, for which you also have a very low CTR and low relevance.

The system says that the landing page experience is Average(green) and I use my keyword and keyword related terms. Its not much different to other landing pages which I have made and have QS of 7?
