Just about three weeks ago, Google told us about the new, dynamic AdWords quality score that they are testing out. We saw that some advertisers have seen the new quality score in place, and we posted screen shots of those changes found in the AdWords console.
The thing is, many advertisers are sitting and waiting for this new AdWords algorithm to hit. They are anxious and scared. How will this impact their business? Will it cost them more money? Will their ads drop in positions? Will they have to close up shop and work at the local post office (not that working for the USPS is a bad job).
Google's official representative, AdWordsAdvisor updated the WebmasterWorld thread to confirm that the new quality score is not yet live. AdWordsAdvisor said:
Please note that the Ads Quality changes being discussed in this thread have not yet launched - except to a very small number of advertisers, as was mentioned in the blog post linked-to in the first post.
There is still not estimated time of arrival for the new ad quality algorithm to go live. But we sit and wait.
Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.
Update: Google has announced that the update is coming within days of Monday, the 15th.
