The majority of our categories remain unchanged. All changes will be effective June 19, 2012. Here is the list of the affected categories with their new rates:

No action is required on your part- any bids below these new minimum cost per click rates will be automatically adjusted on June 19; any bids already equal to or greater than these minimum rates will not be impacted.
