Search Impression Share

Hi,

 

I have kept the estimated top page bid for each of my keyword. The quality score is also 6 or above for all of my keywords. Yet the search impression share for all the campaigns is less then 40%.
Why is that so? And how to improve my search impression share when I already have quality score 6 or above and have kept the estimated top page bid for all of my keywords.
I would be thankful if anyone of you could help me in this regard.

Hi Sayem,

 

Are you able to see data for Search Lost IS (Budget) and Search Lost IS (Rank)?  Although budget is a common cause, it may also be that your Ad rank is occasionally too low - despite using the "Top Page bid".

Hi Sayem, lost impression share is often caused by an insufficient budget.  If your budget isn't high enough for all the potential clicks on a given day, Google will not enter your Ad into every possible auction.

 

Do your Campaign(s) regularly spend close to their daily budget?

Sir Cobnut, My campaigns do not spend close to their daily budget. For example if I have set a daily budget of $100 for a campaign. The spend is not more than $40. Still the search impression share is so low
