Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
After languishing for months in the 9th or 10th page for most keywords, I've tried to be good and honest and follow Brett's steps to create a good site with no nasty stuff. In the meantime, I've been advertising somewhat heavily on Adwords. Well, with this recent update I've finally made it to the first page on all my top keywords, with quite a few #1's and #2's thrown in.
Question: would it be dangerous to pause my Adwords campaign now? Is it even remotely possible Google has increased my ranking due to Adwords spending? Am I paranoid?
I'd be interested in your opinions. Thanks.
Google has what you call a "Chinese wall"
similar to investment banks where the advising stock analysts are seperated from the bankers actually handing out loans and seeing company results, through this wall, information never is exchanged, ever....;)
I am more paranoid for the following:
if I advertise whilst having, say a number six ranking position, while nobody else is advertising for this search query, am I not inviting my competition to do the same..? Is it not better to try to reach number 1,2 or 3 position and keep quite and not advertise?
just my paranoying cents.
>Pause it and keep it as an insurance policy.
I'd keep it going ranking or not, keeps those who can't rank out of the game.
