Google AdWords Let's You Target a CPA

A WebmasterWorld thread has discussion about a possible new bidding feature in AdWords. Honestly, I am not sure how new it is, but it basically allows you to set a target CPA (cost per acquisition) and Google will try to optimize your bids to achieve it.

The advertiser wrote that he was presented with this option after logging in to manage his AdWords account. Google told him:

This new option allows you to bid based on the average amount you would like to pay for a conversion. For example, if you want to achieve an average CPA of $25, you could use this option and set your bid to be $25. Advertisers with CPA targets they would like to reach may prefer to use Target CPA so they can specify those goals directly.

I believe that this was originally a limited test, but if you run Google Conversion Optimizer you can opt for this target CPA now or soon.
