Google calculates your Ad Rank every time a user searches and it has the ability to trigger one of your ads.

The Ad Rank is used to determine the position of your ad relative to other ads competing for the same search terms. It is calculated using your bid amount (how much you are willing to pay for the click), the quality of your ad and landing page, the reserve price for a bid (Google sets minimum prices depending on the keyword), the competitiveness of an auction, the context of the person’s search and the expected impact of extensions and other ad formats.

The actual formula is a closely guarded secret and most likely changes regularly.

Your Ad Rank is recalculated each time your ad is eligible to appear, so your ad position can and will differ each time. You can however see the percentage of times your ad got into the top of the results, and the absolute top of the results.

If you want to rank higher, you have to bid higher on CPC if you are unable to improve your quality score. If you’re going to do this, it makes sense to bid higher selectively, and target the keywords and audiences most likely to buy from you, or use a Google automatic bidding option that bids on your behalf so that you don’t bid higher all the time.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Petra over the last year and a half. 1834 Hotels centralises marketing for over 20 hotels around Australia, all with different branding and websites. On an analytics level Petra’s skills have allowed us to monitor and track our marketing efforts in the digital space. Bringing Petra onboard to manage our Google Ads was one of the best marketing decisions we have made. Her thoroughness and attention to detail is incredible, her insights have helped develop better marketing strategies and demonstrate to shareholders return on investment. I would highly recommend working with Petra.

Here at 1834 Hotels we centralise the marketing for many different hotels. It can be an enormous undertaking to monitor and track the performance of each one, especially when they are all on separate webpages.

Petra helped to resolve this difficulty by creating a central hub in Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics with Cross-domain tracking and Ecommerce as well. She created many valuable analytics dashboards and reports that draw from the centralized source. Now that we have all the analytics tracking working it has improved the accuracy of our reporting and the insights have helped develop better marketing strategies.

Petra’s skills and wealth of knowledge is fantastic. I would recommend Petra without hesitation.

Petra's detailed reports and her personal assistance has been helping us to know where to concentrate our efforts and even showed us technical issues we needed to fix. Our Audience Engagement Report identified several key interests of our buying audience. We tried targeting one of those interests and it brought in two sales almost immediately! I highly recommend working with Petra and accessing her brilliance to scale your business.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.
