It could be an online purchase, an application download or whatever the business deems important. In Google Adwords you can use conversion tracking code to see which ads led to the business‘s desired goal. Ads with higher conversation rates are the ones to keep.

Click Through Rate (CTR)

Ads that suffer from low CTR should be evaluated for relevance and success in comparison to competitor ads. Consistently low performance CTR should be modified and, if needed, replaced or done away with.
