Optimization tips

View changes to the scores in your scorecard

As you take action to address the issues highlighted in your scorecard, you should see your scores improving. When a score increases, you’ll see this indicated by a green up arrow next to the new score. Bear in mind that scores can also go down, for example, if you were to switch back to using non-recommended ad formats or text-only ad units this would affect your “Revenue optimization” score. When a score decreases, you’ll see a red down arrow next to the new score. Arrows will remain visible in your scorecard for seven days following a change.
