Hi Everyone

 

we have 10 or so keywords who's Avg. Position are showing as less than 1( a few are even 0).  Can anyone tell me how this is possible?

Hi Sean,

Of course, that's nonsense under normal 'circumstances".

Chances are we should see a screenshot of the keywords report with the impressions column and the date range, at least. Without that, my best blind guess is it might be some delay in reporting, affecting some particular columns. (Displayed data are not real-time.)

Best,
Lakatos

Hi Lakatos

You're probably right, maybe it's just a timing glitch. These all have 0 impressions (most of the common fields are also 0). I'm trying to upload a screenshot but am getting an error relating to invalid html content.

Hello @Sean_S,

Can't be less than 0. It can be "1" if you are running a display campaign as those ads are always "first" since its not so much a competition thing with banner ads.

Let me know if that helps!
