mine is 11.6

what you do is pick a number between 7 and 9, multiply by 3, divide by 2.5 and then ad 2.

pdivi, i think you are wrong. on googles documentation they define QS as a decimal number, E.g. 1.5.... no a simple QS on/ QS off.

No, it is defined as google numbers. Google numbers are different system than decimal, they have their very own numeric system.

Google numbers are different system than decimal

Quite true. It is loosely based on a logarithmic scale, but also includes some irrational numbers. It is a closed system for a certain subset of operators, but no one outside of Google knows exactly which operators those are.

QS is a mystical adjustment number that they randomly toss at advertisers in order to squeeze more money out of their pockets. They will never reveal it because it's based on their share price and their quarterly expectations for revenue. If they think they're going to miss the analysts targets, the "QS" goes up. If they're having a good quarter, they might leave your accounts alone.

It's really a brilliant strategy because they're a monopoly they can get away with it. They hide behind the "we want to create a superior user experience" line so they look good on the surface. But it's all about pleasing the shareholders now. They would get more respect from guys like me if they just admit that costs per click are rising because of increased compeitition and/or they can do whatever they want. Once the next google comes along, you'll see some major changes.

So which is it?
because they're a monopoly
or
because of increased compeitition

You can't have it both ways.

Wait for it. QS indicators rumored to be in beta. Not numeric, but more high, medium low type thing.

Yeah, uh, LifeInAsia, I was implying increased competition amongst advertisers.

Sorry, I always forget that engrish is not the first language of everyone, next time remind me to draw you a diagram...

Oh, sorry, I didn't understand that you were trying to blame Google for basic economic theory (increased competition for finite resources = increased prices).

What is a Google? It's a big number. However, not quality scores I guess.
