Hi all...is anybody seeing a drop in traffic and or revenue from Adwords? ..and is this possibly due to a new aol.com interface, which apparently, on my computer, one can not do a search.

From search.aol.com, you can still see AdWords.

I'd be interested in hearing from someone who actually uses AOL what the new interface looks like and if it's still easy to search AOL or if the look like they're moving how content is displayed and searched around.

While not an AOL member myself, the best info I have says that members have the search function as usual, along with AdWords ads, also as usual.

am I correct in saying that up until very recently, anyone could go to www.aol.com and do a search? and now users need to go to search.aol.com. This has been my experience. How do users know to now go to search.aol.com? There is not an obvious link off of aol.com.

This is based off of recent declines for mutliple clients in visits and therefore, rev. from Adwords. The decline seems proportional to the typical percentage of Adwords traffic coming from aol.
