After what seems like decades of speculation that Google may incorporate conversion metrics into Adwords pricing, Google finally come out and declare:
“Because of persistant rumors and conjecture along these lines, I’d like to clarify that information from Google’s conversion tracking and Google Analytics is not used in the calculation of ones minimum bid, nor otherwise incorporated in the calculation of CPC. “
Or are they playing the semantic game, still?
Google really need to get out in front of these issues. And a lot sooner. And do so in an official capacity, not just on a discussion board.
Make it crystal clear.
