    Google's recent algorithm fiasco
    Hi everyone,

    I have been getting reports that Google’s recent algorithm for their adwords tool has caused a great many campaigns either got lost, misplacement or even the bid prices were off. Did this get sorted out and what was Google’s response to this?

    Also, did this update only affect adwords or did it also affect natural search as well?

    So if you have any direct excuses that Google sent you it would be greatly helpful.

    Thanks!

    Jai

    the question is in 2 fold.

    1) The reason and result of the Google change

    2) if there was a posibility of this change of Google's could have affected adsence.

    "Did this get sorted out and what was Google’s response to this?"

    No, don't think it will at this point.

    "Also, did this update only affect adwords or did it also affect natural search as well?"

    Just Adwords.

    "So if you have any direct excuses that Google sent you it would be greatly helpful."

    Lots of threads here and over at Webmastworld and other places with people posting what they heard from Google. I don't see any change with Adsense, just do a little tho.

    I've seen the $ per click value going up very nicely for Adsense, but that may be coincidental.

    google is not a straight shooter
    My husband and I rely on our affiliate sites for income, we had to make up for lost revenue when google 'lost' our sites from their database,so we put adsense ads on our combined 400 sites.
    Google removed our adsense ads for 'fraud' . First we have committed NO fraud, and Google owes us hundreds. They say affiliates must pay more for keywords in advertizing and now they cheated us out of our earnings on adsense. I believe they are merely inflating their stock thru' manipulations and just plain theft to create a bigger presence on the stock market. This is the jist of what we received:
    It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on
    the Google ads on your site(s). We have therefore disabled your Google
    AdSense account. Please understand that this step was taken in an
    effort to protect the interest of the AdWords advertisers.

    A publisher's site may not have invalid clicks on any ad(s), including
    but not limited to clicks generated by:

    - a publisher on his own web pages
    - a publisher encouraging others to click on his ads
    - automated clicking programs or any other deceptive software
    - a publisher altering any portion of the ad code or changing the
    layout, behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads for any reason

    Practices such as these are in violation of the Google AdSense Terms
    and Conditions and program polices, which can be viewed at:

    https://www.google.com/adsense/localized-terms?hl=en_US
    https://www.google.com/adsense/policies?hl=en_US

    Publishers disabled for invalid click activity are not allowed further
    participation in AdSense and do not receive any further payment. The
    earnings on your account will be properly returned to the affected
    advertisers.

    Sincerely,

    The Google AdSense Team
    it looks like an Endron endrun, maybe there needs to be another lawsuit against google. Oh and btw one can still click on these ads in my sites so google still makes money while stealing from us.

    your story sounds like a mirror of what happened to me. i was so pissed. they then went and did an "investigation" and still came back with the determination that "false" clicks were being generated. i think its that being you, like myself, have so many sites. it appears google only likes those with 1 or a couple of sites....not impossible to make a living from in itself, but obviously a bit more difficult and will aid in terminating the presence of likely thousands of affiliates....so they themselves can reap more from certain revenue streams with their reinvented forms of "spam". Their attack of recent is targeting affiliates...this is obvious. Ungrateful sods...How much money have they made off us in the meantime? We were useful in helping to raise the funds to get their abomination going...but now we have outlived our usefulness.

    as hard as it may seem, you might be better off just dropping google completely from your business model.

    I got the same darn letter, and all I did is launch a new site and redesign the old ones.
