As I mentioned, I would not do this until your QS was 7 or more. You do want the top positions but not if it doubles your costs which a QS of 4 will likely do, whether you bid manually or not. Get that QS up first, even if near the bottom of the first page.
Yes, this has been the intention from the beginning when I started ad-words. However, after trying so hard on creating those ad-groups, figuring out the correct keywords, ads and then creating landing pages for each ad group. I have had partial success, few keywords got high quality score immediately and rest were either 4 or lower. “So, I thought that could be the end of the road, these are highly competitive keywords and I need to improve CTR for these to get higher QS”
Which, as per “Channel01”
Therefore, you don't necessarily need to rank high to improve QS from better CTR. It's just a matter of having a better CTR for the spot you're at compared to what other ads would achieve at that exact same rank.
THEREFORE, I am back to where I started :)
put a default-bidding amount ($0.5) for each ad group, which could be lesser for a keywords first page bid, would that be affecting?
If I can understand more on landing page quality or creation criteria, it will help me improve QS for my keywords or what should be the idea behind creating a perfect landing page?
