Want no more, advertisers—AdWords has made a few adjustments that make it possible to view end-of-day Quality Scores and Quality Score for individual keywords without making you hover over the bubble icon. They’ve also added new breakout columns for expected click-through-rate, ad relevance, and landing page experience.

Google looks to say “sayonara” to last-click attribution with the recent announcement of Google Attribute. Attribute is a multi-channel attribution service that will help marketers look past the last-click by using data within Google Analytics and Google AdWords to shape a marketer’s understanding of the customer journey.

Just as exciting as the announcement of Google Attribute itself is the welcome note that Attribution will have a free version available to accounts with 15,000+ clicks and 600+ conversions within a 30-day window. Soon enough, advertisers will be able to utilize data from Google Attribute in their bidding strategies.
