Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Apologies if this message is in the wrong forum or has been discussed before.
I am running a few small Adwords campaigns and am noticing that these sites eventually loose all of their PR and their listings from Google.
One such site ran a campaign, suffered heavy Google serps losses and eventually removed the Adwords.
12 months later and all of the traffic that disappeared is starting to appear again. I know that there are reasons that this could be happening like the Google algorythm - but to be honest my research is showing that using Adwords effectively removes smaller sites from the SERPs results.
Has anyone experienced anything similar or have any ideas on this issue - I'd be glad to hear whether yay or nay.
i have to say that i havn't noticed anything like this with my accounts. i have 18 sites that i do adwords with and none have done anything in the serps when we started the campaigns.
Some are old sites and some are new. we have 1 in particular that is at no 2 for our main term, and we do adwords on the same term for it as well. there has been no big change with it.

I can confirm, cazgh, that there is no connection between AdWords and your position in the SERPs.

Thanks AWA! That is Reassuring and have heard it from others before (of course there are conspiracy theories).
Still trying to figure out why an older site with good rankings went to PR0 on all pages recently (site is one of the larger ones I spend adwords on).
Not saying there is a connection (and I truely do believe there is no connection), just still trying to determine what happened (site is white hat with very VERY minor keyword stuffing on a few older pages and 301 redirects to affiliate programs on a few pages with good useful content for the users - from what I can tell there is not connection to the 302 redirect issues being discussed).
