hello friends


suppose i'm using an exact match keyword i.e [digital marketing company] and one of my competitors is using [digital marketing companies].


If someone is searching for digital marketing companies, which keyword should be triggered??

[digital marketing companies]  Right!!! ??


as far as i know, Google AdWords take close variants into consideration as well

suppose my base word is company, my ad will be appeared for keywords like companies,


Here my Keyword quality score is 9 and max CPC is 70 whereas my competitor's keyword quality score is 7 and Max CPC is 60.


Which keyword should be triggered in this case.


Could you please let me know?

Hi Hemant,

If the keywords are entered into the same auction, and one has a higher QS and a higher bid, its ad will appear higher.

but here we have 2 keywords
[digital marketing company] & the other one is [digital marketing companies]

if someone searched for digital marketing companies, second keyword would be triggered


Second scenario is
KQS associated with the first keyword is 9 and Max CPC is 70 whereas the other keyword's quality score is 7 and max cps is 65.

According to the formula i.e Ad rank = Bid * quality score
first keyword will be triggered , no matter if the keyword were [digital marketing company] or [digital marketing companies]

here you can see that i'm using exact match and as far as close variants are concerned, Adwords take into account Plural forms, Acronym, Abbreviations & Acronyms.

Is my point clear????

Hi Hemant,

Ad rank has one more thing included in them it also takes consideration of ad extensions and other impact of ad format.

So your ad rank = Bid* QS* Ad Extensions

So its more likely that second Keyword is winning in this auction .

Let me know if you need more help
