The position of your ad is determined by how it ranks against competing ads. Rank is determined by many factors, including the following:

  • The amount that you bid for the keyword that is used in the search query or that matches the keywords found on the content-based webpage.

  • The relevance of your ad.

  • The performance, or click-through rate (CTR), of your ad on search results pages or content-based webpages.

To appear in a mainline position, your ad must meet a minimum level of performance, also called the performance threshold. If the ad does not meet the minimum threshold, it appears on the sidebar.

For content-based webpages, the owner determines both where and how many content ads are displayed on the page. Higher-ranked ads appear in more favorable positions.
