    I was doing great using CPA trial offers and Adwords, but suddenly all my campaign quality scores have gone down:

    Relevance: noproblem
    Landing page: Poor
    Landing page performance: no problem

    I used to have great QC, by bids where less. Now all my Ads have stoped showing.


    1. Any one on the same boat?

    2. How are you guys getting around ? (I think Adcenter and Yahoo are waste of time)

    content network is still running lots of trials, fake news, and flog sites.

    Search network seemed to be focusing on pages with obvious external affiliate and tracking links.

    Someone posted something about this.

    Google is going after ALL affiliate review websites it seems.

    Pretty dumb in my opinion. Won't it just cost them money when they lose the majority of advertisers which are affiliates?

    in the long run, the do no evil strategy will win.
    that's just how the universe works.

    I'm sad to say i never could manage to get the QS high enough to make Adwords work for me.

    Google is dropping the hammer on landing pages that don't have enough content / value on their page. This is in response to the proposed challenges that are coming from the FTC as they attempt to shut down fake blogs, and affiliate advertising that they consider to be deceptive. If you direct link to an affiliate page or have a landing page with very little content you stand the chance of being "google slapped"
