Yep, that's what happened - I tested the system, even if you try to add a keyword you know nobody bids on (like "htvmpv24")
the minimum bid is 10 cents. I guess that bid below 5 cent happen only with keywords that were (unsuccessfully) used prior by other advertisers - perhaps Google has an entire library of "loser-keywords". But the essense of the algo change is "new keywords are 10 cents or more". How exciting.
Is this going to apply to AdSense-side ads too?
