How to get the Blue Top Position on YSM?

 11:28 pm on Feb 9, 2007 (gmt 0)

How would i get the top BLUE position on a keyword that has no competition and i am the first and only obvious bidding on that keyword?

My Ad appear in the right of the screen and not above of the search results this giving me a CTR or 4%.

My quality score is 3/5

What modifications do i need to do to get that blue position over the search results and not on the right?

Waiting for your personal experiences and advice

This is crucial to me

Try ti write a better TextAd. If you will get a better CTR, you will probably get the blue spot.

I've had no issues getting there, since the beginning.

it's the top 3 or 4 bids for that term...

I've heard a lot of different stories about "how to get there", (you have to do 100K a month is one of them) but all I've done is bid for the first 3 spots and we end up there....

hope that helps...

when you place your bid for "whatever" term..


say someone bids $1.00 for the term "widget"...

if someone else only wants to bid $0.90 for that term they show under the person that's bidding $1.00...

if somebody else bids $1.10 for that term, they would show up over the person bidding $1.00...

just note that the #1 spot can cost you big bucks (depending upon your niche...)

as an example, we regularly bid areas that cost us $5.00, $10.00, $15.00 a click, and more...

in order to get above someone you have to bid more than they are...

Terrabytes, you are losing the point... there is no competition for that keyword....

hi Terrabytes.

The idea is that there is not competition for that keyword.
I am the only one using it.

My ad appear in the left and bottom of results.
I want it to appear on top of the results ( the blue bar)

that is the idea. I am the only bidder on the keyword
