    I’m glad Adwords was held accountable here. Heard this happening many times over the years and very little has been done. Probably because they were such small accounts.

    That’s interesting it looks like my note this morning was slightly different: http://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2010/11/29/adwords-class-action-settlement-cpc-content-bid-field-blank.

    I think it sets an interesting precedent since so much of what gets set up on AdWords is defaulting you into things that cause you to spend more money.

    Google’s opt out strategy for the content network in new Adwords campaign has been a major thorn in my side since it’s introduction. Many advertisers in Australia had no idea their ads shown and receiving clicks outside the search network.

    I’ve seen accounts where the content network sucked up tens of thousands of dollars over a few short months and that’s in small market of 22 million people. $3.5 million is not even a slap on the wrist.
