GT gets rid of some bidding rules

Where did price pinning go?

I use GT for a couple accounts, and I was looking through OV bids today, and all of my bids have changed dramatically.

It turns out GT got rid of some bidding rules, and if your account used those - it just deleted them. I didn't receive an email from GT about these rules changes.

I have a couple areas where one competitor is determined to bid 300-500% of the 2nd place bid - so of course, I price pin him and within a couple weeks, his ad goes offline for the rest of the month, so we're number one with a much less overall cost.

Is there still a way within the GT rules manager to use price pinning - or is it time to switch auto bidders for some of these accounts?

Thanks.

*bump*

No one uses price pinning?

Anyone know of a software package that contains this bidding feature?

I don't use GT so I'll assume price pinning is when the software keeps you .01 below the competitor above you. If so, pretty much all ppc tools have a variation of this. Here's a few..

web based:
ppcbidmaster

desktop based:
bidrank or
ppcmanagement
