Yes the data is available for adword users but it is their property and they can choose to give this useful information to only those who pay them...
so you are saying organic traffic should be dammed and the entire front page of goog should be 1-100 of the best ads? killer!
I don't see a problem in this as Google has long made it clear that users come first for them and not the webmasters.
kool aid mustache? The only thing they've made clear is that googs bottom line comes 1st, they use the "users" word as a silly hide behind tactic. They then use the webmasters as tools to gain more data so they can then shaft the webmasters making goog more goog feeding their bottom line Ehem i mean making searches better for the "user".
t also helps them keep away this data from their bitter rivals Microsoft as googlers weren't happy at what they were doing. "We track data on all websites and how dare you track data on our property through users of your browser?"
right because chrome doesn't track a single thing you do.
the jig is up....goog is just an enormous personal data sucking black hole that wants nothing more then the complete and total control of the net....and that means getting rid of ANYTHING they do not control, IE webmasters that run websites. Every single move they do is to erase something and replace it with "goog this"
