"Low share of voice". Great idea Google. OK, I'll take some of my "Voice" over to Bing. Gimme a break. Google should consider the folks who pay its bills.
This particular quote from an advertiser caught my eye:
So, if you change to accelerated, from standard, it makes impact.I am yet to confirm this for myself.
Abbottsys, their model is largely self-service. They have said they won't make announcements about changes previously. Big accounts probably get advance warning of changes. Big accounts probably account for 80% of their Adwords revenue. (No evidence just the Pareto (80/20) rule)
Unless you can organise the tens of thousands of small fry advertisers into a unified common voice these sort of emotive complaints are futile IMHO.
Having said that I do think you have raised a valid question however.
I think the key message from the Google employees in the thread mentioned by pavlovapete is that this is probably an issue (as opposed to a 'feature') - and that it is being looked into.
I am not aware of the latest myself, having been away - but I will post again in this thread once I know more.
Sorry for the brief message - but I'm prepping for a meeting with folks in another time zone and gotta get to it. :)
