    So from 2/25/12 to today one of my accounts in Adwords.

    Luckily... that spending produced profit, but still needs massive work, only getting a 15% ROI right now on this campaign. The tedious work of breaking the campaign into specific ad groups and really bringing up that quality score can give you massive migraines. My search CTR is horrific, got to bring that up to 2-3% at least.

    Time to get to work...

    This is a funny comment, because I actually thought that spending with Google, and I mean SPENDING.... that maybe they would be nice to me when it came to organic search results...

    you would think right?

    ummm... NOPE.

    They love your money not your organic searches but I know what you mean. Have you spent any money on Google Shopper?

    All I experienced, is as soon as I start using AdWords for a site - the rankings start dropping...

    Impressive amount you're working with by the way, hope you'll get on top of that 15% soon!

    I have not, but I'm hearing "ok" things from my colleagues. I tend not to use Adwords for Commerce because of the heavy budgets of many competitive sites.

    @ BrandingBaw, been seeing similar results this past year... 3-5 years ago, this wouldn't be the case.

    It's a great skill set to have that will teach you how to scale campaigns, know your customer, and most important... create profit.

    I like the display network, tells me what site placements I should do a direct buy with.

    That would be amazing. But, my goal is to optimize to a 30% ROI, which I can live with.
