What is PPC? • Pay per click (PPC) is an internet advertising model used on search engines, advertising networks, and content websites, such as blogs, where advertisers only pay when someone actually clicks on the advert to visit the advertisers website.

  9. 9. How PPC Works
  10. 10. Understanding Google Quality Score • Quality Score is an estimate of how relevant your ads, keywords and landing page are to a person seeing your ad. Having a high Quality Score means that our systems think your ad, keyword and landing page are all relevant and useful to someone looking at your ad. You can find out your Quality Score for any of your keywords.
  11. 11. How Google 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. By improving the following factors, you can help improve your Quality Score: • • • • • • • • • Your keyword's expected click-through rate (CTR): The expected CTR is based in part on the keyword's past CTR, or 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 that 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, such as desktops/laptops, mobile devices and tablets – you get different Quality Scores for different types of devices
  12. 12. How Quality Score Affects You Quality Score is used in several different ways, and can affect the following things in your account: • • • • • • Ad auction eligibility: Higher Quality Scores make it easier and cheaper for a keyword to enter the ad auction. Your keyword's actual cost-per-click (CPC): Higher Quality Scores lead to lower CPCs. That means you pay less per click when your keyword has a higher Quality Score. Your keyword's first page bid estimate: Higher Quality Scores lead to lower first page bid estimates. That means that it's easier for your ad to show on the first page of search results when your keyword has a higher Quality Score. Your keyword's top of page bid estimate: Higher Quality Scores lead to lower top of page bid estimates. That means that it's easier for your ad to show towards the top of the page when your keyword has a higher Quality Score. Ad position: Higher Quality Scores lead to higher ad positions. That means that your ad can show up higher on the page when your keyword has a higher Quality Score. Eligibility for ad extensions and other ad formats: Some ad formats require a minimum Quality Score in order to show. In addition, your Ad Rank determines whether or not your ad is eligible to be displayed with ad extensions and other ad formats, such as sitelinks. Because Ad Rank is a function of your Quality Score, a higher Quality Score can increase the likelihood that your ad is displayed with extensions and other formats. In a nutshell, higher Quality Scores typically lead to lower costs and better ad positions. The AdWords system works best for everybody – advertisers, customers, publishers and Google – when the ads that we show are relevant, closely matching what customers are looking for. Relevant ads tend to earn more clicks, appear in a higher position and bring you the most success.
