Would Google have the ability to remove my organic listings due to not paying?
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. ;)
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....
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. ;)
