Google Ads OptiScore Tracker
OptiScore Get started!

As PPC specialists, we can hardly ignore it; Google's optimization score. After the introduction of this statistic, it has become increasingly valuable for Google. Implementing recommendations may affect the performance of your campaigns and is a requirement for agencies to obtain the Premier Partner badge. But getting a quick overview of the score per campaign has been made less easy.

OptiScore per campaign

This script will therefore help you monitor the OptiScore for the campaigns in your account. To make it as easy as possible, you can simply copy / paste this script into your account. In the script, enter a threshold of the OptiScore that the campaigns must achieve if you want to receive an automatic notification by email with the campaigns that you need to take action on.

Note: this is a 'New Scripts Experience' script, so you must enable this option at the top of the script. With this you can use the Google Ads API, where the optimization score of Google can be found.


  • LOG:Indicate whether the script should report the intermediate steps, by adjusting the value to 'true'.
  • DRIVE_FOLDER: Pick a home folder on your Drive
  • OPTISCORE_THRESHOLD: Set a minimum OptiScore your campaign should achieve.
  • EMAIL_REPORT: Set to 'true' to receive an email with the campaigns that do not make the threshold.
  • EMAIL_RECIPIENTS: The e-mailaddress(es) the email is send to.
  • EMAIL_SUBJECT: No need to change this.

Frequency: Set this script to run once a week.
