I just received an email from google that Data Recovery keywords were added to restrictions to ads for third-party technical support providers.

This will have big impact on small data recovery shop

Here is the email

As someone who doesn't rely on PPC AdWords at all, and has actually focused primarily on organic search results, I must say that I'm quite happy about this change. Now companies in California can't just buy results above the organic results I've worked hard to get. :D

I'm happy for you and me, I couldn't afford paying 10$ for a click. But there are many people that built their business on that and even google rep built the ads for them, to receive an email like this on something they built.....

On the other hand I had many customers that were scammed from computer repair and even non local data recovery.

I'd like to think that this is better for the smaller shops. Focus on your local market and work out from there.

Same here in Germany now (started a few weeks ago) but some "big" companies are left in top position with ads. I hope google will clean this up (also some known scam ads are shown). But atm I am also happy with this change as these ads where a pip-off for smaller shops.
