************************* VIDEO SCRIPT ****************************

Let’s just get an overview of what we’re going to eventually cover in much greater detail.

First, we’ll take a conceptual look at Quality score … what it really is and why it came to be in the first place. Second, we’ll take a closer look at how quality score actually works, what PPC Management is comprised of, and why it’s so important. We’ll then learn some very cool tips and tricks for diagnosing and identifying quality score issues in your account (and this part is especially helpful for large accounts). And finally we’ll learn exactly what you can do to fix low quality scores and make sure they continue to improve over time. At the very end, we’ll go over some popular quality score / PPC management company myths and rumors … and see which ones are actually true and which ones are total hogwash.

It may seem like a lot of material, but all the essential pay per click elements are really quite simple … and once you have a handle on your Quality Score, you and your account will be one very happy camper indeed. So, what is quality score as it relates to PPC Management anyway?

In order to understand what quality score is and how it came to be, it’s important to fist understand what Google is at its most fundamental level …

Google is a massive referral service. People come to Google looking for referrals. When people need to find something on the internet, they ask Google where they could find it.

If Google sent you to a website that offered powerpoint tips when you were searching for somewhere to buy power strips, you might not use Google as frequently in the future, and worse, you might even begin using another search Engine like Bing or Yahoo. It especially stands to reason then, that Google also cares a great deal about this same sort of relevancy when it comes to the ads they show their users. Ads that are shown above their organic search results. Ads that are the bread and butter of their business model, accounting for more than 97% of their total revenue. So AdWords Quality Score, stripped of any technical jargon, is Google’s way of ensuring that their customers have the same high quality referral experience with a paid ad as they do with an organic result. Let us know if you ever need PPC Management services.

Let’s look at an example auction. Let’s say Brad, Ben and Bret all run online shops that specialize in custom tailored mens briefs.

Each of them tell google to show their ads when someone searches for “bespoke mens briefs”. Brad sets his max CPC for that keyword at $3, Ben sets his max CPC at $2, and Bret is only willing to pay $1.50 per click for that specific keyword. So back in the early days, Brad would win the top ad slot, or position1, since he had the highest max bid, Ben would take the second spot, and Bret would take the third spot. Not to confuse matters that are no longer relevant, but Click through rate did in fact play a role in the ad rank calculation before quality score was introduced. Actual ad rank took into account a keywords click through rate since a keyword with a very high bid and no clicks was not only obviously not relevant to users, but it was also not making Google any money …. no matter how much an advertiser was willing to pay for a click. What’s important to know now is that before quality score came along, the highest ad rank was essentially awarded to the highest bidder. But once Quality score was introduced, everything changed … and things got a whole lot trickier.

  1. Superb video Isaac. Having adding negative keywords, and closely monitoring my Quality Score, I've really saved $$$ on my campaigns.

  2. Its a great video and simple explaination by you.
    Just I have seen this video yesterday and you posted it around 2+ years ago.
    I wanted to know that if google has made any changes related to Adwords or Bidding or anything related to that in policies

  3. Hi Isaac, I saw your UDemy the other day and was iffy on getting a full course through UDemy. But after stumbling across this video I've decided to jump on in. I've been doing SEM for about 3 years now and just wanted a solid course to back reference and to get insight from another professionals point of view. So thanks for the video here and I look forward to taking your UDemy course, thank you!

  4. I'm only like 13 minutes in but by far this is the most well explained video i've come across. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this together. I really hope you continue making similar vids !!

  5. Can you do landing pages etc. for digital products from like clickbank with Google Adwords? Or don't they allow that any more?

  6. If you`re looking to have higher rank on search results, i suggest using speed rank seo. Just google it on internet search engine.

  7. Great Video Issac! The only point I would like to make is, in my experience landing page counts to more than 10% of overall Quality Score. Since CTR is not something within our control, but is mainly determined by Ad Relevancy and Landing Page.

  8. Once again, great video, very informative, well structured, and a very clear tutorial. Thank you. You guys are where its at. Hugs!

  9. What should be the  strategy for Number 1 spot advertiser when number 2 ad rank increases? Let's pick the data from the above video for number 1 and number 2 advertiser, i.e number 1 advertiser's bid, quality scores remain the same but number 2 advertiser's quality score changes to 5. So the new ad rank would be 7*5=35
    In this scenario the CPC for number 1 advertiser would increase to 35/7=$5.
    In practical scenario number 1 has done nothing wrong, his position still remains the same but he has to pay more. So now what shall be the strategy of number 1 advertiser to lower down his cpc? And when you have 1000s of keywords what should be the strategy to keep track of CPC and quality score movements?

  10. Hi Isaac. Thanks for this awesome video! I'm still wondering are PPC and CPC and CTR are different or they all refer the same concept?
    Could you please give me the link of advanced video? Thanks
