Yes, for PPC, it would seem that the worst case scenario is probably a 20% to 30% drop. But we also have to consider that in the event of a drop, Google might decide to keep the better earning ads for their own search engine instead of PPC services - this would reduce PPC even further.

In fact, even without an actual slowdown, we've all experienced first hand how our earnings at ND can suddenly drop and rise at the whims of Google.

For IDNs, hopefully, with the launch of IE7, the increase in traffic due to IE7 would more than offset these possible future scenarios.
