Adwords advice (possible buffonery on my part)

    So I have had Adwords up for Singleguylife for 3 days. I am just testing it and my per day budget is $1.00. SGL isn't fully to where I want it to be BUT I have added content and design and felt it would be a good time to get it out there as I develop it.

    Anyway this is the info I have gotten from adwords since I started my Campaign, codename: WTFamIdoing!?!

    % served: 100% (I assume this has nothing to do with dinner?)
    Campaign type: Search Network with display select
    Campaign subtype: all features
    Clicks: 13
    Impressions: 4,103
    CTR: 0.32%
    avg CPC: $0.18
    Cost: $2.38
    Avg Pos: 1.4

    Now bearing in mind my budget is set at Maximum $1.00 a day and keep in mind I have NO idea what I am doing, please give me some idea on how bad/good/hilariously awful and offensive these stats are. BTW I have 72 keywords tied to this campaign related to my niche.

    Thank you and have a sexy day!

    Just go to Amazon and search "Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords" and buy the 2014 edition. That explains Adwords good for starters, there is WAY too much to explain if you're not knowing the basics yet.

    Don't mess with the display network if you don't know what you're doing. There's a reason Adwords has 2 separate exams for this to receive their certification. I'm not going to tell you how to do everything, I'm just going to direct you to Google Partners and tell you to view their Adwords guides and take their exams to receive their certification.

    Your average position is excellent, although you should improve your CTR by serving more relevant ads (make your ad copy more relevant to your targeted keywords and appealing to your target visitor).

    LOL you need some serious study before trying it out... Anyway $1/day is not test you just throwing your money... Proper test will cost you more money that's why not every body try their hands on PPC... You need money and skills to make it happen or you might loose every thing very fast.

    I have money to burn and the best way, to me anyway, to learn something is to actually do it and fail and understand WHY I failed and correct or modify my methods.
