It is something that IF Google incorporates, could just give them a HUGE(r) list of VERY satisfied customers. All Warriors who are into PPC on Adwords would just freak out along with the other millions of affiliates.
Now I built a solution for that problem and want to offer it to Google, unless I get turned down by them, which is when I will try and speak with Yahoo or MSN. The best way to get in touch with them, that I could find was through Google
I sent them my proposal though I did not mention anything about how much or what do I expect, I just told them, this is what I figured out, and I have a solution for it, if you are interested, let's talk about it.
What should be the next step if I DO hear back from them. What I am talking about is surely something pretty significant. All I can tell you right now is that we guys (me and you - IMs using Adwords) collectively have spent a few million dollars finding ways around it.
What are the odds that a company like Google would hear your discovery (because that is the first thing they want to know - What shortcoming are you talking about), and just go around finding solutions to it without giving me any credit or buying my solution? If you think the odds are high, what can I do to protect myself, instead of spending $18000 on filing a patient then giving it a shot.
