Over the weekend when I mentioned the mystery factor causing price gouging on adwords. Some of you who participated in the thread clearly didn't get the problem. This morning when I logged in I had large bunches of keywords that were turned off due to low quality. To help you understand what I'm talking about here's a screen shot (keywords sanitized)
So in the screen shot we're looking at two keywords that were running in premium positions with double digit CTR. Suddenly these premium position ads have become low quality and have had their bid prices jacked up to $1.00 and $5.00! How do you go from premium position to low quality overnight? How can you justify the price doubling or increasing by a factor of 10 overnight?
I don't think I'm violating any TOS but if I am can someone drop me a PM.
