AdWords
« on: August 10, 2006, 04:29:10 AM »
I began Adwords 4 and a half hours ago, and my ad has already been displayed 2345 times, with 20 clicks so far. That's not a huge click-through rate, but it every bit helps! The best part is that so far I've only dished out one meazily dollar for 20 clicks. :)

I love AdWords! ;D

If Adwords has a similar TOS to adsense then you are violating the TOS by posting those screenshots and some of that info ;)

You will find it drops right down due to the way adwords works, new campaigns get a higher weight than older ones from other people, you will soon find that to continue being displayed you will have to increase your bid a lot, unless you have a very niche market.

Today I had 30 clicks within the first 3 hours it started over again for the day. I'm impressed now, we'll see what happens.

Very nice. I got banned from Adsense... (sigh...) so I'm somewhat hesitant to try Adwords. :P

Oh, and I got my CTR up to 2 percent at one time. I think it was because of my arcade ad, which is the type of ad you 'just have to click'.

As for Orien, feel free to try AdWords.. From what I hear it's a clean slate and it doesn't matter if you've been banned from AdSense. A lot of people have been banned from AdSense it seems.

Yes, they strictly enforce their TOS. It seemed several people were going click crazy on my ads.... I'll go try Adwords and see how it works for me. Thanks!
