11/9/06 Google fubars content AND search QS yet again!
=======================================================

This is awful and its getting old.

Google is getting downright greedy and is calling it "QS" as an excuse to charge us more.

Here's one example:
I have a keyword, "fish" (for example), it gets 40% CTR, no other bidders on it (exclusive trademark usage), page is as optimized as it can be (Fortune 100 website) ...... bid used to be $0.03 -NOW- $0.25.

Some folks are getting hit with ridiculous $5 minimum bids.

How can Google send a bot to my site and tell me that my site's quality is junk? Suppose my site is completely image based (and I do use alt tags), how can they determine QS?

It's all junk. Sure they are trying to wipe out the MFA guys but jeez, this is pure greed.

Big G needs to understand that this cow can only be milked for so much. Go milk your new GOOTUBE cow.

My guess is that if G sees lots of Adwords traffic in and lots of PPC traffic out without much in between then the algorithm decides it is a "Low Quality" Site. Maybe there's more to it than that, but I blieve that is the main factor.
