That was my thought exactly. They want feedback, and I will reply that it is great they are communicating with us, but the information is very dated at this point.
Should you care to describe your ideal newsletter (in terms of both content and frequency), I'd be happy to pass your feedback along to right team early next week. ;)
A newletter should be exactly that. Perhaps outlines of future improvements and developments. Perhaps why things have not been implemented. How about highlighted web-sites - ones that Google think are the sort of sites we should be striving for. This would perhaps give everyone an idea on how to write their sites in a way that Google likes, and avoid the QS alog. How about a few facts and figures - how many new websites are using adwords. Market trends. Tips on analytics.....
Loads of possibilities - but informing us of stuff that has been implemented for some time just sort of makes Google look a bit incompetent - IMHO :)
How about a news letter article about the LPQS. With specifics, such as a mockup of a webpage selling widgets - a high QS mockup webpage highlighting major key points. along with another mockup showing the most common mistakes people make which causes a low quality score. A picture is worth 1000 words in this case.
Your current learning tools are apparently too vague and ambiguous for a mere mortal, like me, to figure out. I've implemented every point that I can pinpoint to my best ability and still penalized for low QS.
Funny thing is that if someone told me what was triggering the problem I'd probably be able to fix it in an hour.
Agree with Sailor; that would be nice to have some actual clarity as opposed to the nonsense that is constantly flying about.
I'm waiting for a certain someone to pull a 'mightier than god' message out of his ass any second....
And a message telling me how stupid I am.
See, I'm not that stupid since I already know I'm stupid.
Too bad we can't buy off a Googler and have them spill the beans.. They are all too rich.
Any real information would be better than what we have.
Obviously details wouldn't help the MFAs since a lot of them already know how to beat the system...just create a new domain every couple of weeks.
Those of us with a real businesses and a real customer base can't do that.

Even a mere listing of all upgrades and changes since the last newsletter with a brief description of each change's benefit.
Google - you're making tons of improvements - I just wish you'd be more public and expeditious in telling us about them.
AWA, I'm in the UK and didn't get the newsletter. It's a great idea, IMHO.
adwords.blogspot information is presented in a timelier fashion. Maybe the newsletter could reference the blog (for those that are not aware) to view updates as they occur...
I didn't receive the newsletter either. Most of my campaigns are for the UK market.
