Another Adwords Bug

 10:41 am on May 10, 2002 (gmt 0)

Is anyone else seeing this...

At the bottom of each ad-box theres text like this: "MaxECPM: 4.8434 Match length: 21"
or "Match length: 11 [DEBUG]".

I'm also seeing up to 25-30 ads per page...

Also, the search terms in the ads are highlighted in bold, is that new?

Looks like AdWords running in debug mode. No, I don't see that stuff, but I do see the bold highlighted keywords. Yes, I think that's new.

it is the first time I see kw in bold.

I like it.

I don't see the other stuff either. Just the bold. It bolds the keywords anywhere in the ad, except the URL.

Is this an attempt by Google to encourage us to include our keywords in our ads?

So far, I like it.

highlighting KW is back online

your right, the bold letters are back on www, but not www2 or www3.

Also, www2 and www3 have fewer results than www for all my keywords.
