What determines my ad position on the search result page?
Microsoft Advertising is a Paid advertising system i.e. Pay Per Click (PPC). You bid based on how much you want to pay per each click on your ad. Because the search result page has a limited number of places to show ads, these spaces are auctioned in real time. You are bidding against your competitors to get your ads into the space you want. So if you bid on the keyword “auto repair”, you will have to beat the bids of the other competitors who are also bidding on “auto repair”. You can choose your bid on how much you willing to spend for a click. Your ad position is determined by several things, including:
- How relevant your ad copies and landing page is with the user search term?
- How your bid compares to other advertisers in the Microsoft Advertising auction?
- How actively your ad has performed in the past and how often it has been clicked (click-through rate)?
If you are stronger in these areas, the better your chances are for winning the top ad position.
