Hello,
I received 1 click for my keyword yesterday, but today, it is giving me this message and there are no more clicks happening for that keyword. The message that Google shows me is given below:

"Showing ads right now?
No

* Due to a limited number of ad positions on a given page (up to eleven ads may appear per page), your ad could not be shown within the first page of search results. Learn more."

Please help me on this. No idea what I should do. The QS for the keyword is 3 now. I cant think of any next steps. Please help me.

Thanks and Regards,
Piyush

Easiest way is to bid more. A quality score of 3 is very bad. Do you have the kw in your ad text and on the landing page? That can cause a problem. What is the match type for this kw.

The keyword is present in the ad text and present on the page atleast 2 times in the content and once in the page title.
Keyword match type is set to broad.
Any other hints apart from increasing the bid?

Thanks,
Piyush

That doesn't mean it's relevant, or that your ad is written as well as it could be, or even that it's spot on the right keyword. You need to bring that quality score up. First guess is that your keyword might be too broad for your offer or landing page.

I've got a similar situation. However in my case for a three word, low traffic, very unusual keyword combination Adwords says the "first page bid estimate" is $1.00. I have a 3/10 on this phrase, but it has only shown a total 347 times in 6 weeks, gotten 1 clickthru (at 20 cents) and shows an average position of 1.1! This was a term that Adwords suggested for me, and is located numerous times on my site, and apparently no one else in the whole world could care less about this term, since if I go to search on the phrase on G, absolutely NO ads show up for anyone, even when searching from a proxy surfer! Yet G is telling me the first page min bid is $1.00? And No the ad is not currently appearing because it is below the first page bid. Is something seriously WRONG here? It does say "Keyword relevance: Poor", while landing page quality and load time are fine, but again it was a phrase THEY suggested in the first place, and I have numerous other terms with this combination showing ads for <20 cents.

his was a term that Adwords suggested for me

When I set up a campaign I found that the suggested keywords had the lowest QS!

Ok, well Google's suggestions are just that - suggestions. They haven't studied your landing page, and they don't necessarily know the ad you're going to write for that keyword, they're just giving you some ideas to possibly explore. Most of the suggestions they give me are way off, and I just discard them.

There's no reason to expect that because Google suggests a keyword for your campaign it will automatically generate a good quality score. That's only one part of the equation.

I agree and only pick about 10% of the terms they suggest anyway. This one just happened to be ideal. I've noticed too that they must base the suggestions on your overall campaign, as the ones which come up under one ad and keywords, fits much better on another ad.
My point though was primarily that G decided to show NO ADS at all and lie about the $1 minimum first page bid, rather than show a 20 cent bid with .3% CTR, as if there was a minimum bid set for this phrase. Gee, seems I recall a whole lot of Adsense Publishers who have been asking for this option to set a similar minimum bid per page that G apparently HAS and keeps for themselves :-).

Hi,
If I put up the same keyword with a different ad group to be put on the Google Content network, would that also affect my overall keyword QS?
Also, should I go for CPC bid or CPM bid on the content network.
Please advice.

For reasons unknown, the tool suggested yesterday that I try "male men" as a keyword ?

Hi,
I am receiving a new message today for my keyword. The QS for the keyword is 2 and the message shown by Google is "Rarely shown due to low quality score".
But still after that, the keyword has already triggered my ad 45 times today with an average position of 4.1
Any suggestions how to deal with this issue and how to bring up the QS?
