    Adwords - Can Now Set Separate Bids For Content Clicks
    Content bids - New! [?]
    Let me set separate prices for content clicks

    Under Campaign Settings.

    Says new, just noticed it, don't know how long they've had it. Usually i opted out of having my ads show in the content network but will try it, try for some low bids.

    I just don't get a return on those content sites. Sometimes I thinks it's cheating directory clickers.

    i just noticed it to I was opted out of content sites, now I can at least include them on limited campaigns at a much lower cost per click.

    I was at a conference/forum today and the Google reps spoke on this.. A few things freaked me out with it.. Adwords advertisers can bid a minimum 1c per click on the content network now.. As an advertiser, great.. as a publisher, that's just harsh..

    They've also introduced site targeting, which apparently allows advertisers to target specific sites, market segments, demographics etc.. ie. Rolex can target golf sites with Adwords now.. This has a minimum bid of 30c per 1000 impressions.. Again as a publisher this is harsh..

    Yes, but it's still market based. The minimum may be $0.01 CPC and $0.30 CPM, but if it's worth more than that, it'll be bid up and those bidding just the minimum won't be shown .

    I agree with MC. And on top of that, adsense competitors are emerging - so G knows ideas that don't make the publisher money are not just bad for the publisher. In my mind, G is giving the publisher more and more options to figure out how to make the most. Same is true for the advertisers on the other end. And of course, for G as well.

    Choice is good. Let's everyone find what works best for them - and that's a good long-term strategy to keep the ad dollars flowing in all directions.

    So, if they only pay a penny per click, what the heck would WE get paid for that click????

    Guess it may be time to remove adsense, soon.
