Hi, 

 

Does any one know of some really good resources on the history of Google Adwords?

Specifically I would like to find the year that the first automated bidding strategy was introduced and the years  of the ones that have since followed.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Braden V

 

Interesting question, 

 

Here is what I found:

CPA (Conversion Optimizer) was officially launched in 2008, beta testing started in 2007

Enhanced CPC bidding was launched in August 2010
