Google - Better or Worse

I don't know where google is headed but I sure have been very dissapointed with the adwords the past couple of months and especially since their recent changes.

I'm sure most of you know that the adwords is their cash cow. So I am not sure why they are not paying more attention to their updates. All they have to do is watch some of these forums and will get a since of dissapointment the advertisers have.

Example is the extremely high CPC charges for decent keywords. The loss of ranking for those who use to have PR's of 4 or better are now down to 2 or lower.

I know myself I have started advertising more on yahoo and enhance.

I guess we need to keep in mind the Enron scandals and the like and not put all of our eggs in one basket. So the point here is for those of us who have products to advertise. Start looking for other methods of advertising and selling your products. If you just sit and take whatever goolge throws at you. You will end up in the poor house.

Isn't it common sense not to just advertise with any one company?

Yup to watching your back

There is no such thing as security...but its smart to diversify for sure. Adsense or adwords, having your whole web income revolving around either could put you in the hurt locker.

But if you have traffic...you have lots of choices.

The high cost of good keywords sure kills a "dablers" affiliate plans though. That could be good or bad depending on what you do online.

I've been harping on this point for over a year now. Don't put your eggs in one basket! Google will change and you must adapt. Plus, they are not the only answer. So many people are AdSense and AdWords crazy these days.
