Google playing fast and loose with broad match?

do_no_evil.gifIf you use Google Adwords you will want to read this article by Dave Collins. If correct (and I have no reason to believe otherwise) it is pretty outrageous. Not content to force up the price of bids artificially by invalidating keywords they are now apparently showing your ads for broad matches you didn’t bid on, i.e. extremely broad matches. This could in turn lead to a lower CTR and more invalid keywords.

Better start examining those logs and polishing those negative keywords…
