Click Share for Search Campaigns

What is Click Share?

"Click share is the estimated share of all achievable clicks that you have received and is available only for Search and Shopping campaigns." - Google Ads help

This metrics allows you to identify where there is a lack of performance and you can concentrate particularly on those areas to improve your clicks.

For instance:  If you have received 50 clicks and your click share is 50%, the estimate of another 50 clicks that was expected to have obtained would have been gained if you had more extensions, better bids and increased budget. If you have a Shopping campaign, it would have been because of a number of products in the search query.

The lesser click share, the more ways you can improve in apprehending additional clicks
