quality score product listing ads

I was just wondering if anyone knows how google calculates "quality score" for product listing ads. I don't even know if such a thing exists, but it would be useful to know how google determines ad rank on these ads, especially if google shopping is disappearing.

Hi chedgefappc,

 

Yes, there is a QS for product listing ads, but it is not revealed to you. QS is based on your product description as compared to the search query. You can get a boost to the QS by getting reviews on certain websites. You'll need a minimum number of reviews, I believe that number is 30 reviews in the last 30 days.

 

What can you do? Work on your product descriptions and try to get some reviews. It's a tough job these days. Especially if the product you offer is also offered by Amazon or eBay. It's close to impossible to compete with the number of reviews registered on those sites. I do hope they come up with a better algorithm for this soon.

 

Best of Luck!

Cheers for that Pete, that does seem to make sense. Similar to Google shopping then.
