Adwords Keyword Data Response Plan?
Wouldn't the best way for the SEO community to respond to Google's blatant extortion of small businesses by hiding keyword volume data for smaller advertisers be to do the following:
1) Create a new Adwords account
2) Have multiple SEO professionals contribute to funding the account
3) Run a campaign targeting keywords where Google currently buys terms and run competing ads that explain Google is being a dick.
4) Provide access to any and all people who want granular keyword data via MCC or whatever they're calling it these days.
It's probably a crazy bad idea but ... who knows?
