How Display URL affect Quality Score?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi everyone,

 

I saw some article mentioned that the history record of display URL can affect QS, I wonder is it the domain or the whole URL history record.

For Example, the display URL of an ad is www.ABC.com/DEF, then is it the history record of www.ABC.com or www.ABV.com/DEF would affect keywords' QS?

 

Thanks.

How we calculate Quality Score

Every time someone does a search that triggers your ad, we calculate a Quality Score. To calculate this Quality Score, we look at a number of different things related to your account, like the following:

  • Your keyword's past clickthrough rate (CTR): How often that keyword led to clicks on your ad
  • Your display URL's past CTR: How often you received clicks with your display URL
  • Your account history: The overall CTR of all the ads and keywords in your account
  • The quality of your landing page: How relevant, transparent, and easy-to-navigate your page is
  • Your keyword/ad relevance: How relevant your keyword is to your ads
  • Your keyword/search relevance: How relevant your keyword is to what a customer searches for
  • Geographic performance: How successful your account has been in the regions you're targeting
  • Your ad's performance on a site: How well your ad's been doing on this and similar sites (if you're targeting the Display Network)
  • Your targeted devices: How well your ads have been performing on different types of devices, like desktops/laptops, mobile devices, and tablets – you get different Quality Scores for different types of devices

Hi Xwolf,

 

Each individual URL has it's own history, not just the domain.

 

So in your example the ads display url of www.ABC.com/DEF would have it's own history but the domain www.ABC.com would have it's own as well if it was used elsewhere in the account
