Ha! Charging you even when they don't send traffic to your website. That's Google innovation!
I suspect that organic ad growth on adwords is getting tapped out. Only so many advertisers willing to pay so much, only so many clicks on ads. I fully expect to see Google's growth going forward based not around ad growth, but on monetizing existing ads in new ways (i.e. same advertisers, paying more money).
