Screwgle™ - Google's new ad revenue model


@Tim J

yes, users are fickle, but in the way that if something works they tend to stick with it. the memory of solving a problem makes them happy and they carry on using it. users don't just stop using their favourite search engine replacing it for another...

Eye of newt: Inside Google's AdWords auction

Thumb Up

please people!

Thank you James Butler for taking the time to comment setting this crap article straight. I don't think anybody could have said it better.

Google doesn't police what I read, if they serve crap from advertisers trying to bilk the system (like this author), I just don't click it. Lose for everybody.

Over the years the content I'm served from Google has just gotten better and better, to the point that I'm served results from Microsoft URL's more relevant than even Live Search manages.

I will never stop using Google, even with Internet Explorer's obfuscatory default Live Search.

Can this site please stop bitching about AdWords now??

@Anon, like Peter, you completely missed the point, this is not about the advertiser and his budget, as the user this is about ME and my time and what I WANT. I would be so totally pissed off with Google for not weeding out advertisers bidding high for crappy ads that nobody clicks on, this would basically be free spammy advertising. Sounds like this quality index is doing the trick.

I'm little perplexed by everybody bleating bout Google being a monopoly. The advertising market is huge incorporating radio, newspapers, magazine, tv, direct marketing etc etc. Advertisers have lots of ways to slice their budget, online spend accounts for a sliver of that.
