Can Google Remove a Natural Listing on the spot?

If my client doesn't pay their Adwords Bill can they remove organic result?

Here's a hypothetical....if i had a a large adwords bill and decided not to pay it, would Google have the ability to remove my organic listings due to not paying?

The ability, yes although it is unlikely that they would do it as they like to maintain that adwords and organic listinghs are completely seperate and they would have to apply a manual penalty to the account to do this.

That said - I wouldn't risk it. I'm sure they wouldn't do it, but... I wouldn't want to risk it.

OF COURSE THEY WOULD! Would they do it immediately? Probably not. Would you die a slow death? Probably so. Don't even think about reneging on the bill. And, if I had my finger on the trigger, it would be an immediate pull. ;)

That said - I wouldn't risk it. I'm sure they wouldn't do it, but... I wouldn't want to risk it.

I've seen some "unusual" things happen over the years. I wouldn't put it past certain people to have the power to "nuke" ya in less than a second if need be. ;)

Let me ask you the same question and you answer it.

I built a client a website and had control of the website the site went up and worked fine but the client refused to pay me for my work.

Would you leave the website up or take it down till he paid you for your services.

Google is a business and I am sure is run as a business don't pay you don't play.

Tell your client it is in best intrest to pay and if he doesn't like the traffic he got from the campaign then tell him to disable it and don't get back in the PPC.

I am in agreement with pageoneresults on the slow death thing....

You are talking about them policing their own house where they make the rules.

What do you think will happen? I think you will quite crispy and blackened on the edges!

Not sure I would admit this with my name and location as my username. But, that's just me.

I for one take absolutely no note of such things. The way I figure it, the less I know about anyone here in terms of their actual AdWords account or their position in the search results the better. And I make zero effort to find out.

I think this is worth saying from time to time. And this seemed like a good opportunity. ;)
