Goodman Revisits AdWords Changes & Importance Of Clickthrough

by , Comments

The Importance of Clickthrough Rate (CTR): Has it Changed? from Andrew Goodman at Traffick is a very long look at recent changes to how Google is making use of clickthrough rate as part of its ad system. He highlights that AdRank is no longer CPCxCTR but instead takes in some other factors such as historical performance or ads with certain unspecified characteristics. In short, it's CPCxQS, with QS being a quality score made up of some things an advertiser can't visibly see. So an end to the importance of clickthrough? Andrew hopes not, seeing clickthrough as still a great indicator of quality and relevancy to the searcher. Good, well-written and fun read.
