I have no other words.
It's good I got the point a long, long time ago when Google bumped ad prices based on "free analytics".
Here's also from comments on that article:
Why do you think G gave us Conversion Optimizer? So you could call the financial shots, not them. What did they get in return? Commercial DATA. The value of clicks and Sales.
If you still give Google your conversions, i.e. actual dollar values, you lost your business sense, because it WILL be used against you.
There's a big time, real need for an open source marketplace and a distributed search engine. I'd sign up tomorrow.
