Hey,

Anyone else seeing drops in Quality Score today? Top terms are going from 10 to 8 but CPC's seem to be remaining the same.

Seeing it across several campaigns -

Landing page relevance has gone "below average" on most keywords.

I think it's some sort of glitch - CPC's all the same as yesterday.

Ah, yes. Right. Missed that.

So any speculation that these changes are this - or something different?

That announcement indicated it would be rolling out over the next few days, but we're now a couple of months into that, so it's rather strange, imho.

It's a little baffling that keywords with 15-20% clickthrough rates going to pages with a low bounce rate (good user experience, relevant pages) suddenly drop in QS from 7/10 down to 5/6 and not display at all.

But Google seems to be doing a lot of baffling things lately.

Glitch seems to be repaired: Quality Scores are back to normal over here...
