Why low bid or low quality score, if they are not?

I am confused. One of the keywords is not showing due to low bid or QS. The bid is above est top page bid and the QS is 7/10 and budget is not reached.

Funny enough in the preview it says the ad IS showing...

My opinion: higher the bid. There is not much difference between QS 7 and 10 in terms of CPC. And in competitive areas, it could be hard to reach above 7.

I did so and it works. I guess to be on the save side you have to be quiet a bit above the est top page bid.

Thanks Moshe!

Hello German N.C.D.

 

The First/Top of page bid , estimates are only for the exact variation of the keyword. Read from here :

Here is also an interesting article about the relationship between quality score and price impact on clicks (3rd picture) :

I would not rely much on this analysis (3rd pic), and take it with caution.  I I'm not sure which regression was used to  plot a linear correlation based on the data. My experience (no scientific experiment, though...)  is that there is not much difference in CPC between QS  7 and 10.
