    AdWords Average Position Below 1?


    Has anyone ever seen their average position being reported by AdWords as less than one? My highest click-through rate keywords all seem to have average positions less than one...

    For the last month, I have the following:

    32% click-through ratio, 0.8 average poition
    40% click-through ratio, 0.9 average position
    100% click-through ratio, 0.5 average position

    Has anyone else seen this behavior? Makes me question the accuracy of what AdWords is telling me...

    Well, that would within the realm of "normal"... even as low as 1.0... I just don't get how we can possibly have an average position less than 1.0 for some...

    Okay... got another one now...

    I have a keyword group that for the day (today) ran at:

    Click Through Ratio: 300%
    Average Position: 0.1

    Seems awfully strange to me...
