As Search Engine Watch's Ron Jones explains, the best way to save money on bids and increase ad position is to improve Quality Score. Part One does a nice job explaining Quality Score basics as well as minimum bid and keyword position. Part Two gets into more details, specifically:

  • Importance of AdGroups and AdCopy: For the exact reasons cited by Jones, such as lower costs and better performance, one of WordStream's fundamental components is to properly organize keywords in AdGroups and produce keyword-rich Ad Copy.
