    I just looked up my quality score for last month - it's a total of 'very low'. Not sure why, since overall I did about $5000 of revenue for eBay. My traffic is targetted and converts, so I'm not sure what metric(s) they are using. It looks like I'm going to have to run multiple accounts to separate the very high / high / medium quality ACRUs from the low quality ones (I have pretty good tracking on what is converting, ACRU-quality-wise). What a pain - one more reason to move on from eBay. Last month I did almost 80 ACRUs, and it looks like from now on I'm going to make squat for them.

    I just wanted to start a thread to get some thoughts / opinions about the new ACRU compensation calculations.

    It would be interesting to know how you track your ACRU quality?

    It's a report type, called 'Campaign Quality'.

    would be curious as to other members comments about the egay QS system. From what it sounds like, if you got conversions, they could be basing it on something like referrer and penalizing down for no referrer or referrer from sites associated with BH traffic methods (like CL for example). This is known to be done in other QS systems.

    The new quality score is apparently based on whole array of factors such as time spent on the websites, amount of bids, how related to your original landing page is the purchase of the ACRU and so on. Tracking and optimizing this is going to be a pain in the you know what..
