Been advertisting on a keyword at the minimum of 4p for a while.

It gradually went up the ranks and took around 4 weeks to premium postion.

Now this newbie advertiser comes along and some how the google algorithm knocks me down because hes bidding higher than I am and so I am knocked below him and to the right handside.

Anyway 1 week later hes left this keyword and now im having build up my CTR again to go north.

If think this is a problem and hope google fixes it.
