Google is Schizophrenic

So the last slap landed my campaigns that previously had "great" scores (.05 bids) with $10 poor ones...and there they sat for weeks.

Yesterday, the campaign reverted to "great" again and sent about $500 worth of clicks through it.

Today? "Poor" $10 bids...seriously Google...what is up?

Has anyone seen this before? I made no changes at all to the campaign or landing page.

Google is Schizophrenic

HAL 9000 (Heuristically programmed Algorithmic Computer) [en.wikipedia.org] - Any of those folks working for Google today? :)

It may be that an old server sitting in the basement of one of the coolest buildings in CA kicked in and remembered your site has already been penalized. Google - An animal with no head and no tail.

Sorry for not having other comment, and sorry for not being of any real help.

It's happened to me before, I just leave the campaign 'unpaused' but 'expired'.
Keywords go from poor to great & back again. Without any change on my end. Adwords is just a sidebar for me, must be a wild ride for any serious advertiser..

Most probably a change in the QS algo..or Google is 'experimenting'..
