Impr share (top) % column

Applicable to Google Ads and Yahoo! Japan only

Search top impression share, abbreviated as “Impr share (top) %”, is the impressions you’ve received in the top location (anywhere above the organic search results) compared to the estimated number of impressions you were eligible to receive in the top location.

Search top impression share = Impressions on top/eligible impressions on top

You can use this metric as a target to set your bid if you want to increase the percentage of your ads that show at the top of the search results page.

A Search Ads 360 impression share bid strategy can set bids to target an impression share.
