    The solution is simple - just don't use Adwords!

    Don't be evil :))) I love the fact that you will have to pay more than double on the same amount of traffic. And people say SEO is dead :)))

    I do not use adwords myself, but think of the hundreds of thousands of brick and mortar businesses that do and will see a slash in ROI.

    It therefore makes SEO seem even better value so maybe it's positive for us. I agree though that this is just another example of Google cranking the money printing machine up to an even higher setting

    it means we get to charge more for adwords ppc managment, a lot more negative kw's and testing a/b stuff. Most small bizze's are going to use adwords express which sucks, or the being tested paid search local, either way most of this stuff seo/ppc is way too much for most business owners
