Bill Slawski, resident patent guru, has discovered yet another patent application about Google AdWords. The discussion has been brought to the attention of the folks at WebmasterWorld. According to Bill, there are 44 factors in total that might be used in a Google AdWords quality score. Some of these include:

  • How many times a user selects a given ad in a given session.
  • A duration of time, from an ad result selection, until the user issues another search query.
  • A ratio of the time, from a given ad result selection until the user issues another search query, as compared to all other times from ad result selections until the user issued another search query.
  • Time spent, given an ad result selection, on viewing other results for the search query, but not on the given ad result.
  • How many searches (i.e., a unique issued search query) that occur in a given session prior to a given search result or ad selection.
  • How many searches that occur in a given session after a given search result or ad selection.

This information seems to apply only to Google AdWords, but the descriptions are pretty clear and many are happy to have stumbled upon Bill's post because they now have a greater understanding of the Google AdWords quality scores.

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.
