Google Ads' Average Position Metric Is Going Away

May 12, 2018

In today's digital age, businesses all over the world rely on effective advertising strategies to enhance their online presence and attract potential customers. One such strategy that has proven to be valuable is Google Ads. With its powerful targeting options and wide reach, Google Ads has helped countless businesses achieve their marketing goals.

The Evolution of Google Ads' Average Position Metric

For years, digital marketers have relied on the average position metric in Google Ads to understand how well their ads are performing in search engine results pages (SERPs) compared to those of their competitors. This metric has provided valuable insights into where an ad typically appears on the page, helping businesses refine their strategies and maximize their ROI.

However, in the ever-changing landscape of online advertising, Google has decided to bid farewell to the average position metric. This change comes as Google continues to introduce new metrics and features to provide advertisers with a more detailed understanding of their ads' performance and position in search results.

Understanding the Implications

While the retirement of the average position metric may initially seem daunting, it presents an opportunity for businesses to reassess their advertising strategies and embrace a more comprehensive approach to measuring success in Google Ads. Rather than focusing solely on average position, advertisers can now leverage other metrics such as Impression Share, Absolute Top Impression Share, and Top Impression Share to gain a deeper understanding of their ad's visibility and prominence on SERPs.

These new metrics allow advertisers to evaluate their ads' performance and make informed decisions to optimize their campaigns. By combining relevant metrics, businesses can develop a more holistic understanding of their ad's placement and make strategic adjustments to ensure their ads are reaching their desired target audience effectively.
