    Anyone else noticed, and I've seen this a few times now, you start an adwords campaign, and suddenly the page you have the ad directing to goes up the organic rankings...

    Happened a few times now, coincidence?

    I have never heard of this, I have heard people saying the opposite in the past but never really noticed any changes in my own rankings, with or without Adwords.

    Have you tested it with a proxy?

    Could this be something to do with customized search results being enabled?

    I noticed the customised results lead me up the garden path a few times.

    However incognito mode shows quite the opposite effect more often than nothing at all.

    I would definetely log out of Google and then search again

    The customised results often make me look like an SEO Genius... until I log out and see what everyone does :oops:

    You don't need to log out to see what everyone else sees btw... just add &pws=0 onto the end of the Google url once you've entered your search.

    You could also try your query in a browser in which you don't routinely sign into Google (one of the reasons I have multiple browsers installed).
