Previewing the New Adwords Interface
One of the sessions most visited today is without a doubt the sponsored session by Google. In this session Google gives the visitors a preview of the New Adwords Interface. UK users had the chance to look at it a couple of weeks ago, today Google 'showed off' their changes.
