Finding Quality Score Insights with Historical Graphs & Recent Quality Score Changes

By Brad


New Features, Quality Score

Analyzing how your Quality Score changes over time can give you great insights into what ads and landing pages are leading to your best Quality Scores. It also lets you see as you conduct ad testing how this can improve your Quality Scores.

When we think of Quality Score, it is made up of three factors:

  • Expected CTR
  • Ad Relevance
  • Landing page experience

So you don’t want to just see how your Quality Score changes over time; you also want to see how the Quality Score factors change over time so you don’t miss crucial insights. For example, for this keyword, the Quality Score has remained a 7 for several months. However, in reality, the landing page experience increase and the expected CTR decreased at the same rate. If you can graph these factors, then you can see that your landing page changes were positive but your ad changes were negative:


Now you can go and look at your testing data and keep your landing page as it is since it’s better, and then look at the changes to the ads, and your ad testing history (if you use Adalysis this is automatically saved for you), so you can create an ad with a higher expected CTR based upon your information to increase the Quality Score.

In order to easily find insights into your Quality Scores, view changes, and find areas for improvement, Adalysis has launched several new features.

Quality Score Movers

For your account; you can easily see the account level Quality Scores and how it’s changed in the past week.

For accounts, campaigns, and ad groups, this data is impression weighted. This will make it easy to find where your Quality Scores have changed by account, campaign, ad group, or keyword to quickly drill down into the changes so you can see what is going on.
