May 14th, 2010, 10:10 AM #1New Business..helping avg joe with PPC
I can't understand why every time I use Adwords I'm constantly given a low quality score. the targeted area, the ad, keywords, and landing page are more relevant than anything anyone would want to find (if a user in that area typed in the query) on Google ".. I even went upto $1.00 per click and I'm still given this "rarely shown due to low quality score".. I used to spend thousands of dollars with adwords a few years ago. I was hoping to start a new business helping people sell things on Google. kind of like a middleman between users and adwords for people who just don't have the time to learn how to do it themselves. How can I do it for someone when I'm hit for a low quality score from the get go.. Is everyone hit with a low quality score before there ads are displayed. does everyone have to bid upto $5-$10 click before adwords deem the keywords and ads relevant. I spend thousands with Yahoo/MSN and never have this problem. I realize Google has a huge share of search but how can I explain to avg Joe that he has to spend $5 on Google for someone to click his ad? I know that if the keyword gets clicks that the $5 will drop to $1 and maybe less but for the average person wants to try this for a week with $20 bucks and doesn't want to spend $30-$50 dollars just so they can get a fair price for a click..I would love to spend thousands of dollars again with Adwords. anyone got any suggestions or is this not a good idea to start a new business helping the avg joe?

If your customers are selling real products that they have in inventory and they are not using any questionable business practices, then quality score should be directly related to the quality of the landing page, ad copy and CTR.

Thanks Cathy..I do advertise affiliate products and I too had great quality scores for years and overnight went to poor. The ad that I created recently had a landing page with no affiliate banners. However, I'm using the same url.
Do you or anyone else reading this think I should do this?
1. start a new website with a new URL with no affiliate banners
2. start fresh with a new adwords account and a new website.
3. keep spending countless hours with an Adwords Specialist?

Cathy thank you for your help..
I was wondering if someone at google adwords could adjust the tag if I took off all my banners but they probably think that if and after they did (publishers/adwords users) would just but that back up again. If I start a new
website with NO LINKS TO ANYTHING EXCEPT MY OWN SITE.. Do you or anyone else thing I should..
1. keep the same account with same credit card but with the new site.
2. start FRESH with a new account different credit card and new site.
3. hire someone to do it and just be the middle man...

I was wondering if they are saying your landing page is the problem or the keyword relevance?
If they are saying landing page quality poor they might be mad that it is seen as duplicate content.
You might try to removing the banners and all links from a page and then change the filename of that page and reaim the ads at the new page.
It will probably look at the page again.
And option 2 above is not as easy as that and will probably result in them banning all the accounts.

thanks but the page that I made recently had no banners or any affiliate links. Google said the ad, keywords, were all relevant. The landing page was made in html with source code all relevant to the page, keywords and text to the ad..
I'm thinking that my site has been tagged becouse I do and have had affiliate banners on my site and they just don't want to tell me to remove them?
Option 2 might be my next step. not sure...

Reply from Adwords:
I understand that you are concerned about the poor Quality Score of your keywords. Your keywords received a low Quality Score because of low Quality Score of your landing page. I've now confirmed that your website was not correctly evaluated by our system, and we've fixed this error. You should see improvements to your Quality Score soon, reflected by higher Quality Score details for your keywords.
I was raised from 2/10 to 7/10... Hurray!

Wow, congrats! Makes me want to try again to get pages re-evaluated but my landing pages clearly have affiliate links. The site that was re-evaluated had no affiliate links? And is it your plan to add affiliate links in the future? Just wondering what will happen if you do.

Thanks Cathy..the site that was re-evaluated has 1 affiliate link. It had 3 until a week or so ago..The landing page has no affiliate links but it does have the same url associated with it..I did notice that someone from Google filled out one of my registration forms in my site to check and see if it went to something? I don't plan to add any affilate links in fact I'm thinking or removing the 1 from my site. I also thinking of sending a newsletter to all my registered users and then fill it with affiliate links.
