Simple yes or no question:

Are you as happy with Adwords as you were last year?

It's costing me a lot more money and I am not sure why
Possibilities: 1. Click Fraud increase
2. CPC increases
3. Increased competition

We are still getting good results but I hope the next year does not show the same level of cost increase. G seems to be still the best search engine although Yahoo seem to have upped their game recently.

No.

More the fault of my product pipeline than AdWords itself, though.

Yes. They are constantly making changes and that gets old but over all the product is the same.

No! Admittedly I'm not doing as well so my comments could be perceived as being a little subjective.
Generally though I would like to see more consistency and transparency ie. less algo changes with better disclosure and explanation when said changes occur.

Unfortunately the answer is a very definite, "no".

As I have tweaked my ad buys, AdWords performs better and better. When I compare to print and other online venues the performance is outrageously higher.

Am I happy this as last year with AW, you bet.

No.

No doubt about it, the Google Halo has started its innevitable slide.

Have only been using Google for about 6 months and it has been a constant roller coaster ride.

I'm happy with them today - but ask me again tomorrow.

No. Cause I am more happy than last year.
G gives my ads more exposure than last year and I am able to get more clicks that lead to conversions...

So far we have 14 not as happy, 7 as happy and couple that don't take a position either way.

No.

- Service quality has slipped a bit.
- Increased frequency of technical problems.
- Increased concerns about advertisers being treated fairly, especially with respect to ensuring that all advertisers are being made to comply with the same editorial policies.
- Increased issues with Google using Adwords for self-promotion.
- Continued concerns about click fraud.
- Loss of advertisers' targeting control due to changes in expanded broadmatch.

Adwords remains the gold standard in the business, but lately it has been trending in the wrong direction.

No, their content network reviewers do not work at weekends. Slow review process.

definitively no. the random minimum bids are too confusing, and caused costs to rise dramatically.

No, but not because of google but cause of more competition, on the keywords i target.
