Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Why can't some of us club together and run one account that meets this. Apparently the UK will lower this freshhold by 50% if pushed.
10 of us would make it worth a go for me.
Alternativly some here who have accounts could charge 10 Plus cost and I would be in.
I'm I missing something?
Did anyone respond personally to your request? Don't give out specifics on keywords and such but for us not using this format for promotion I'm curious how your idea would work.
As those here who do use it all say you it gets a better ROI it seems obvoius.
Shakil, I am not suggesting clubbing together with competitors:
I list for WIDGETS and other related widget keywords
You lists for Somethingelse and other related Somethingelse keywords etc etc.
If enough interest is shown I would be willing to get a quote from Google UK.
On another note, Google will look at most proposals, even if less than £15,000 or whatever fugure keeps doing the rounds.
As long as you are serious about advertising, Google will try and work out a solution for you.
Like I said this came straight from the top at Google UK.
I am sure GoogleGuy will agree that the ceiling has been only been placed to encourage best practice amongst advertisers and eliminate the $100 campaign guys, Starting a Premium listing campaign is a bit more time consuming than your average CPC/Adwords/Overture campaign.
Although the benefit of being "on top" in Google is enormous, if you get good CTR "on the side" the results can be just as good and occasionally you get to be "on top".
As creative as the idea is I just can't see it working.
Offline media buying firms operate something very similar for vast profits.
As for relevancy on the phrases I target the current ( well on and off daily) Premium Ads are for totally irrelevant household products caused by a single word in the phrase.
