Quality score (current) column

The most recent value of the AdWords or Bing Ads quality score for a keyword. The 1-10 score is an estimate of the quality of your ads and landing pages triggered by a keyword.

A high score, such as 10, means that AdWords or Bing Ads think your ad and landing page are relevant and useful to someone looking at your ad.  A low score may result in your ads appearing in a low position, or not appearing at all, regardless of your bid. See AdWords tips for improving your ad quality.

If you see "--" reported for an AdWords keyword, there aren’t enough impressions or clicks to accurately determine a keyword’s quality score.

You can use this column in a formula column by specifying the Quality_score_current variable.
