It has been confirmed that it depends on the country the Premium listings will end between june and dicember of this year.
In fact Google has got a Sales Meeting with all the Reps in Amsterdam next week to discuss just this. I hope they do not smoke too much GRASS and get too much out of this world!
The danger of joining Premium with Adwords is that the big guys with big budgets will be able to access to all the popular keywords more easily.

The new format seems to be operating already for searches through the Google search box at amazon.co.uk

Its been like that for a while. I was getting premium listings for 13 cents!

I'm not into Adwords advertising but I promise you one thing to become true, when Adwords go to the premium location:
The minimum bid won't be 5 cent anymore but will at least be raised to 10 cent / click and it will somehow be separated from the normal Adwords Select program.

I am going to be watching this move really close. If it happens how I think it will happen, it's good news for the little guys.

We have a lot of terms where we are the only one or one of two. All are 5¢. It will kill us if they move it to 10¢. Hopefully Google will leave a slot for us little guys.

I also like that fact that my national competitors won't be able to pay less per click for the top spot than I was paying for lower positions.

Thank you for your feedback. I too, can appreciate moving to a better business model. A CPC model will be better for all advertisers. My main concern is that they tripled the price of my last renewal and was told that all renewals are subject to this price increase. Has anyone experienced the same?
