Hello Fellow Warriors,

Although I've been hearing about the Warrior Forum for months, I finally just signed up today. Thanks for having me!

I heard a crazy rumor on Twitter yesterday that Google is dismantling AdWords?! That's just a rumor, right? I mean, isn't PPC advertising what made Google the behemoth that it is?

I eagerly await your replies.

      I read on Google itself that they are discontinuing AdSense referrals, but not AdSense entirely. As for AdWords I have been unable to log into my account for days, which makes me wonder...

      Dismantle the most successful business model on the internet?

      That is the least likely thing I could imagine.

        If adwords goes down, Google goes down. 90%+ of their income comes from those little ads.

          I think the shareholders will not be liking that at all.

          If Google did close down the advertising program that they so successfully run then where would their profits come from?

          Sell your Google shares today before they become worthless due to Google killing the cash cow.

            Google was down yesterday for several hours and I could not create new ad camp. They need to wake up. Blogger was also down. It would not surprise me to see them kill their cash cow adsense. Take a look at the stock it is going down.....

                I'm wondering how these rumors start?

                It's probably related to the no more AdSense referrals.

                AdWords is working at my end just fine.

                Cheers,
                Dean

    Probably in terms of financing it but Google is best known for its search feature

      Adwords isn't going any where

      They just sent me their 10th birthday card

      This reminds me of those rumors 15 yo kids send around "OMG I heard facebook is closing etc"

    Hi,

    Do you really think they'll simply shut something down which makes then $22 Billion a year?

    Welcome to WF BTW!

    I am sure Google will not stop adwords and adsense never. These are the best ways for Google to make money and why it should discontinue them?
