Estimated CPC Google Adwords Column Disappeared and Gone Missing
Estimated CPC gone missing form Adwords
Today when I logged in to the Google Adwords keyword tool I found that the estimated CPC column option had disappeared. It was simply gone missing. When I clicked the column button in the top right corner there was no estimated average CPC option to choose.
What is estimated average CPC anyway?
CPC stands for cost per click for ads for the associated keyword. It is the cost to advertisers for using the keyword. The bigger the estimated average CPC in the Google AdWords keyword tool, the more Google will pay the website for hosting the keywords.

Now, when I was trying to do some keyword research this morning, and saw that estimated average CPC calculations were not available, I was kind of alarmed that Google might have decided to remove this option from the AdWords keyword tool or make it available only to logged-in users.
