    Another Google Slap??
    Did anyone else get hit again last night with another Google Slap?

    I got tagged by one around March 8, and my min bids went from under .10 to .2 and .3. I made some changes to my site, deleted some non-performing keywords, and yesterday morning my bids were back down to single digits.

    Then I take a look this morning, and all my good keywords are back up to .2 and .3.

    Here's an example of what I'm talking about. Here are the stats from yesterday for one of my well performing keywords

    Clicks Impr CTR Avg. CPC
    100 311 32.15% .10

    It's not one of the best, but as you can see it did pretty well yesterday.

    This morning I get up and find out that the min bid for this keyword is now .20

    Hmm, based on the CTR from yesterday, I'd say my keyword was pretty relevant. I didn't change the Ad copy or web site last night. For no apparent reason, Google decides to double my Min Bid today.

    I've got many, many keywords that were "slapped" with a new (doubled or trippled) min bid amount today.
