    This is concerned for people who use PPC campaigns and domain name bidding specifically.

    If you go to google search, now, and start typing any domain name that you would like and it'll automatically fill it out and you can click on the domain through the main search.

    Why is this bad?

    If you do domain name keyword PPC bidding, then you are going to start losing alot of traffic to this auto-fill domain type feature google has, meaning they wont click through your affiliate link, meaning you won't recieve commissions.


    In my opinion, this is probably the worst business decision google has ever made, as theres hundreds of thousands of people like me and you willing to pump hundreds of dollars a day for specific domain name PPC campaigns. I have sent an e-mail to adwords, and I would urge you all to do the same and I'm hoping this new search engine won't last long.

    I tried typing in a domain into the search bar and nothing new happened. I tried various forms of the url including www*domain*com, hxxp://domain*com, hxxp://www*domain*com not looked out of the ordinary.

    Is this an update that hasn't happened yet? If so can you drop a link to the page that talks about this?

    Thanks

    Try to just type in domain.com instead of the www or http
