If you guys are going to suggest that a google representative is being dishonest publicly..
I don't doubt AWA is telling the truth - min cpc isnt directly linked to conversion stats, not a direct relationship. MY point is its influenced by all the data google gathers, used as a whole to decide the new hidden ranking and pricing policies. For many this means an increase.
And disagreeing with someone does not mean you accuse them of dishonesty. Its also possible the evidence shows one thing, and a representative has been told something else. How many times have you discussed something with a company employee knowing you were right and they were wrong? Im not saying thats the case here, I believe what AWA is saying, but companies dont always tell their employees everything. People are entitled to voice their opinions.
