Interesting - when searching for "link building" on Google a month ago, I got 30-40 Adwords results. Today, I get 0 Adwords.

Did Google kill off bids for "link building" like they killed off pharmaceutical ads?

Interesting observation - still plenty of ads for "build links", however.

Gee,

How in the world will someone bright enough to know they need to "build links" or "buy links" ever find what they are looking for? =p

Prohibition is fun, ain't it?
The government gets to feel in control and the masses are able to get liquored up in private.

Except this is like Prohibition in GoogTown while the next towns over, YahooVille and MSNburg, allow drinking.
Not to mention all the different states (ala forums) that allow drinking and tell you how to make your own brews.

So I ask, what exactly is this supposed to accomplish?
That Goog doesn't like being "gamed"?
Think we got it.

Or is it yet more FUD?
Simple investor propaganda?

If i want to get drunk, you best believe I'm going to find me some liquor. :)

Well spotted. This could be a trial because some variations as noted do bring up ads, but I can't imagine the need to ban this niche. It would have allowed G to identify some individual PCs that clicked those ads and use that as background knowledge to confirm a specific complaint.

I always use phrase match when selling links:
"I sale cheep links"

It still comes up fine.

Just kidding :)
