According to Geordie from PPC Blog, last weekend several major Internet sites were hacked and had their internal documents shared to the world.

Geordie also discusses what Adwords will do to your account if it gets hacked—and it’s not pretty. So diversify! Or get hacked by this guy!

Peter Haubold at the adCenter Blog discusses a report by the US government about the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Since half of these top resolutions are health related, as Haubold notes, January is usually a big month for advertisers in this industry. He offers some insightful resolution & click volume statistics, as well as some excellent January optimization tips.
As PPC managers, we strive to continually optimize our accounts. However, when you’ve been running a successful campaign, you may be wary about making any changes without knowing the outcome. Luckily, Google released their free tool Adwords Campaign Experiments (ACE) back in August. Peter of PPC Blog has written a great post on how to use ACE.
