Demystifying PPC Quality Scores

Your PPC campaign has a quality score. Google, Yahoo and Microsoft reward relevant advertisers (and punish irrelevant ones) by instituting the quality scoring system, which simply put says: Advertisers who display relevant ads may achieve higher ad positions at lower costs-per-click than competitors who may be paying higher costs-per-click.
