View Full Version : Adwords - Is the thing working?

I tried Free Cell Phones in adwords, and it said I wouldn't get any clicks even if I paid $50 per click!!!

Overture says free cell phones is searched 3000 times a day (was 8000 last week) and word tracker says about a 1000. Why doesn't google think it is searched for?

Perhaps it means that $50 per click bids are too low. Try $80 or $100... bet you'll get some clicks then ;)

I've found the adwords prediction thing is often way off. Start a campaign with a very low bid and see how it goes. Then step it up until you're getting the level of traffic you're happy with and at a price that you're comfortable with.

Though, if you're just using adwords to work out search frequencies and bids, I wouldn't bother. It really doesn't seem very accurate.

I wish I had a site that would work good with Adwords....

I haven't got my site ready yet, I'm more likely to do targetted tribal fusion ads, but adwords could give me and idea of competition, etc...
