What should I do beyond politely asking Google for an explanation?
Any thoughts are appreciated.
I'm curious if we got slapped by an automated or human action.
I had a domain and Google claimed most of my keywords were "Great" for the longest time. Between May 3rd and May 4th, all the mininum bids jumped to $10.00 -- makes no sense at all to me.
Oddly, the same thing happened on April 21st to another domain. Suggests to me it is automated. I don't get the impression that Google has too many people working there anymore on anything to do with that Adwords thing that brings in most of their income.
Can anyone verify that it is indeed the landing page that Google "slaps" -- as opposed to the home page of the domain? I did swap out the home page of the most recently hit domain this weekend -- and now I'm starting to kick myself. All my Adword ads sent people to targeted pages inside the domain, never to the home page. Just seems rather odd that overnight, Google would suddenly consider every single page on the site equally stinky.
