A big problem behind the QS seems to be that the people in the business of just trying to sell stuff with their ads do not want to divert the users attention with alot of content and other links that could direct their attention from the overall goal (a sale). Anyway I was wondering if someone could shed some light on if the QS is assessed per domain or on a page by page basis.

For example lets say I have the largest most content containing site on the internet, I have a billion pages of specific content on various topics. I would assume I would have a high QS.

Lets say now I were to make an ad and point it to a page within my domain that just has a banner with an affiliate link. This page is clearly low quality based on Googles guidelines, but the site overall is probably rated as high quality. What do you think would happen to this specific page, would it be penalized or not?

An adword points to a page, not to a site. Even if it is your home page it is still a page.

Fryman - whilst logic says this is the case - I don't think it is. As previously mentioned in WebmasterWorld, the bods at adwords have stated that once a "site" has been hit by QS it is sometimes easier to start from stratch rather than trying to kick keywords into action on a "particular domain name". People I know that have been hit by QS price hikes have been hit on every page - not just those which are deemed low quality.

According to google both landing page AND site "may" be factored in to the QS.

Highly unlikely. If you had say a hundred pages of content written with some conviction about something you understood well and it was written in a fashion that made people WANT to read it, link to it, and email their freinds about it then yes, thats a quality site. Its not possible to have thousands never mind billions of pages of GOOD content, because thats called filler. The internet is full of it.

Plus they seem to be targeting any site that makes its money from ads or aff links.

Genuine,

I think you took my example too literally. I was merely exaggerating, I am not refering to any page in particular. I am just looking to start a new site and was wondering if I have some landing pages in that site could them getting a low QS affect my whole site.

It is domain and sub-domain.
If domain hit then sub-domain also hit and if sub-domain hit the domain will not hit.

I experinced
