I have received phone calls and message in my adwords account stating:
"Free Consultation with an AdWords Media Specialist: For a limited time you're eligible for a free consultation to improve your account structure. Call 866-2-GOOGLE or sign up online today."
I am slightly suspect that this is something more than a helpful offer, and that it may tempt Google to start pushing buttons on their little black box to lower my organic results and force me into relying solely on Adwords for traffic. My site is over 10 years old and I know my traffic and customer patterns very well. My Adsense and Adwords are finely tuned to the point where Adsense pays my entire Adwords campaigns each month to the tune of about $500 +/- $250.
I think Google would rather see me paying them more than they pay me at month end and that's all this is about. Call me paranoid, but Google's business model and closed door policy does not lend itself much to trust.
Anyone care to share a success story regarding these consultations? or otherwise?
