QS x Actual CPC = Ad Rank
opposed to those in other positions
QS x Max CPC = Ad Rank
and you Actual CPC is calculated,
Actual CPC = Person Below You's Ad rank / Your QS
so what i am trying to say is the only factor in the Ad Rank calculation is your QS to make your account more relevant is the only way to get better rank!
