@themadscientist....I can see the traffic as it comes in via keyword in chat. What's happened is google has stopped sending "custom widget a" traffic and instead sends us "widget a" traffic which might as well be "retail widget a" vs "wholesale widget a"
outland88, where did you see that? Is there any video or story available on-line?
When determining which ads to show on a Google search result page, the AdWords system evaluates some of the user's previous queries during their search session as well as the current search query. If the system detects a relationship, it will show ads ďrelated toĒ these other queries, too.

Bing surprisngly excellent results.
Isn't that funny how the Adwords are right on target, but the organic are close but no cigar?
I'm betting Amazon is UP (Waaaay UP).
It's the business motives that kills.
main SERP pages get updated first and they pass updated data set to caffeine
Lots of people are thinking that way about Google. I'm not.
I understand you want to believe the best about Google and I get it. I used to be like you.
So IMO they would not intentionally degrade organic search quality just to boost Adwords. They felt this algo change was important, but in its first iteration it was lower in quality than they planned.
Google may make their money from Adwords, but without organic search traffic, generated by really strong organic listings that make Google a destination, they would not get the ad clicks either, and they know that.
