  1. Glad you liked my post, Linda!

  2. Thanks for the acknowledgement Linda … glad you liked it!

  3. Google has been doing the automated matching for a while now and it really gets me. I’ve seen accounts not even close to hitting daily limits, then a measure is taken to optimize/reduce spend (like turning off ads during weekends) only to see the cost never come down. Google magically figures out a way to keep the spend at about the same level. Some of the matching is horrendous.

    As for Yahoo forcing an opt-OUT…! Isn’t that like saying “you owe me a million bucks unless you request otherwise”?!
