    Article on Seobook from today, 21th August:

    "Google recently released its quarterly earnings report. In that, it reported that aggregate paid clicks were up 18% year-over-year and 7% quarter-over-quarter. That's up 30% year-over-year on Google sites and 9% year-over-year on network members' sites. Aggregate CPCs were up 11% year-over-year and 4% quarter-over-quarter. CPC on Google sites was up 16% year-over-year."

    It's all about the $$$ as always.
    Milk it as long as you can.

    P.S. In German Places, saw drops about ~50% for a BIG brand with 5+ locations in one city after the 3-packs.
