How To Improve Google AdWords Quality Score


How To Improve Google AdWords Quality ScoreGoogle AdWords is the perfect match maker. When the user is searching for something and finds exactly what he needs that is what Google aims for and considers a great user experience. When ad provides a great user experience that is reflected in the Google AdWords Quality score. Quality Score is basically an attempt to describe the overall effectiveness of the advertising campaign. In other words, Google AdWords Quality score is the type of grading mechanism where grades range from one to ten, ten being the highest and one the lowest.

Why is it important to have a high Quality Score?
Having a high quality score brings all kinds of benefits. Just like it is in your personal interest to have a high Quality Score ad, it is in Google's interest as well. For that matter, Google rewards ads with high quality score by reducing the fee per ad click and giving the ads a better position on the page. In other words, the more relevant your ad is - the higher quality score and the better your position - the less you will have to pay for a click.

How do they calculate the Quality Score?
Every time someone types in a keyword relevant to your ad, and by doing that triggers your ad, Google AdWords calculates the Quality Score. For the process of calculating the Google AdWords Quality Score, Google goes through number of different things related to your account. Namely, Google AdWords checks the relevance of your keyword – how relevant it is to your ads, how relevant it is to what a customer is searching for and how often that very keyword led to clicks on your ad. Google AdWords also reviews your whole account history – how well your ad has been doing on this and other sites, how successful your account has been in the geographic regions you're targeting as well as your overall click-through rate for all the ads and keywords in your account. Last but not least, they check how often you received clicks with your display URL and the quality of your landing page (destination URL).

How do you improve your Quality Score?
If you are not satisfied with your quality score, do not worry, there are procedures you can take in order to improve it. First of all Google AdWords offers you some tools that can help you with your keywords, placements, optimization and more. Besides tools, there are simple steps you may follow in order to increase Quality Score.

If you want to increase your Click-through Rate, the best way to do it is to make your ad interesting for a user to click on. You can achieve that by the use of punctuation in the key areas, making the title a question and ending it with a question mark, ending the final sentence with the string of three periods or with the use of symbols such as $ or % to make your ad stand out.

The use of the same keyword in your Ad Text as well as in the landing page will improve your quality score. For example, if you are offering a special discount or any kind of special offer for that matter, and display it in the ad text, be sure to display it in the landing page as well. Using the keywords that are most relevant to what the users are looking for will tell Google’s algorithm that your landing page is highly relevant to your keyword and your Ad. However, if you have a keyword which receives tons of impressions but has very low Click-through Rate makes sure to pause it as soon as possible as it will only decrease the CTR of your entire campaign.

Also, the use of an outbound links on your landing page that are relevant to your targeted keyword may help you increase your Quality Score. Make sure that the very web page has a good reputation (e.g. Wikipedia). This re-affirms to Google’s AdWords algorithm that your page is directly related to the users search query.

Using Content to Get Better Search Engine Rankings


Using Content to Get Better Search Engine Rankings

By now, most everyone has heard that content is king when it comes to getting a high ranking Website in the search engines. This is certainly more than just a cute saying, and it is still true.

It is important to understand that the goal of the search engines is to provide the user with new and valuable information. This is why it is necessary to continue to add content worth reading, as well as using the best keywords. Because the search engines are also trying to give the latest information, it explains why a webpage may be at the top one day and then it will slowly go down the ranks with time – as new material is produced somewhere else using those same keywords.

New content needs to be added on a regular basis, but not just in any way. Since it is people you are trying to attract, you want to be sure to make it enjoyable for your visitors. This includes having good English, being well thought out, and then written in a way that keeps their attention.

Another key factor in good content is that you really do need to have something to say that many people are not already aware of. Obviously, if what you say in your content is the same as what everyone else is saying, then you give them no reason to want to come back and visit your website. As far as they are concerned, you do not exist unless you are going to make it worth their time to come back again – no matter how many articles you have.

Having unique content can make your website go viral, too. If you post something that is really good, then your visitors will be telling others about it. You can help them to do this, by posting the "Like" tags on your Web page, and also the Google+ and Twitter tags, too, to make it easy for them to spread the word.

When it comes to SEO use in your content, be sure to use it wisely. Optimizing your website for the search engines is important, but you also must make sure that it is friendly and easy to use for humans, too. The search engines are much smarter now, and they can easily find your keywords, especially if you are using metatags. They cannot find keywords in your graphics.

Linking to Others:
Link your keywords from one page to another on your website. Do not link to other pages from such words as "Click here to learn more," but use the actual keywords. This will help the search engines know that there is related material for those exact keywords. Be sure to use the keywords in the webpage title, and also in the article title and in some of the subtitles of your content.

Getting Links From Others:
Don't forget that you can always add content to other websites that will give you inbound links, too. This will enable more people to be able to find you if you add your links to high ranking websites, blogs, and forums.

Think long term rather than short term. Getting a high rank in the search engine results pages will usually not come overnight. It is a slow process, but by focusing on a variety of keywords for your pages, you can certainly start to see an increase in traffic.

While it is very important to regularly add more content to your Website or blog, you also want to use other methods for SEO, too. Getting the higher-ranked Website you want actually requires a number of tactics – all working together.
