ROAS adjust bids on keywords that have very few clicks (1-10).  Which isnt enough data to determine if a keyword is really a truelly good keyword, is this not wrong or have I missed something?  2-3 clicks isn't enough to determine true CTR,CPC, etc. so why is it for ROAS.

While I, as an "outsider" cannot see enough data to make sensible bid adjustments based on such limited data, I am not Google. Smiley Happy  They have access to a much deeper pool of data, including performance for that keyword across a wide range of accounts and for a longer historical time-frame.


They do a lot of behind-the-scenes data-crunching and analysis and by the time a tool like this is offered publicly, Google has a very high confidence that the results it produces are what they claim.


Sorry, that's about all I have to offer by way of explanation.
