Adwords brand advertisers
experienced a recent cpc increase?

Msg#: 4440074 posted 4:15 pm on Apr 12, 2012 (gmt 0)

The average CPC for our brand term has increased from 0.05 to 0.50 in less than a month - for no apparent reason, any other brand advertisers experienced this on adwords?

I haven't seen this at all.

Is your QS still the same for your brand terms?


Msg#: 4440074 posted 1:12 pm on Apr 13, 2012 (gmt 0)

yep, all else remains the same inc competitor bidding


Msg#: 4440074 posted 6:49 pm on Apr 15, 2012 (gmt 0)

Yes! I have noticed this too!

No competition and my bids went from 5c to 40c!

10/10 QS also.

I hope adwords gets nailed with an anti-trust for this crap.

interesting to hear carepedppc!

I haven't found any coverage of this on industry forums, but looks like it changed about 2 weeks ago

Any other experiences here?

My bids lowered slightly the past few days, followed by a suspension. Awsome!

Google refusing to give a reason and told me I had multiple disapproved ads which is not the reason by any means.
