Bill, sorry, but I don't get it. Whatever you earn from that click will be 70% of what you as advertiser paid for it. According to Google, they pass on 70% of what they charge the advertiser. What does that tell you about smartpricing?
Are you thinking it will tell you how much less than your max. bid you had to pay? But that could be for other reasons.
Or am I thinking along the wrong lines? Please explain in more detail. For example, how would that method enable you to distinguish between a site that was being smartpriced at 50% and another that was being smartpriced at 90%?
