Quality Score Issues for Money Keywords
Hi, I have a question. I am familiar with PPC and QS, but I'm currently hitting the following issue:
I wrote my "Panic Away Review" following the guidelines in Mark's landing page tutorial. I have "Panic Away Review" in my H1 tag and the page is perfectly optimized for search engines (alt tags, meta tags, etc).
My QS is 4/10 for this keyword, but 6-7/10 for everything else! Google states there are no problems with my Keyword Relevance, Load time or Landing Page quality. The site is about 30 pages in depth and is very transparent and white hat in nature.
Is it likely that my CTR is contributing to this terrible QS? Past affiliates using this word incorrectly?
Thanks so much :)
Today Google knocked 10 of my keywords to a QS of 1/10 and sited there were no problems with landing page, load time or keyword relevance.
My website is 30 pages deep in unique, SEO optimized content. All I can say is: what the hell? The site is as legit and white hat as it gets.
Any idea why in the world Google would do this?
Now, all of my keywords have been slapped to 1/10 for the panic/anxiety niche with Google citing "no problems" for all the important aspects of keywords (load time, relevance and landing page quality).
Anyone have any ideas?
Prior to my new domain getting slapped, I was receiving 30-100 unique organic hits, since the slap I've received none. Does this mean I am no longer able to rank organically for my keywords?
