    I'm a total newb when it comes to Adwords. I just set up my first Video Ad with a budget of $10 per day. It's only been running for 1 day and Google has already spent $21.65.

    Does anybody have any idea why this is happening?

    Thanks in advance

    Google says that, you may either spend more or less of your daily budget, but you will never cross your monthly budget, so let's suppose if you have a budget of 10$ a day, you will never cross 300$ in 30 days.. :)

    A few cents above the daily budget is normal however a more than double spend is definitely not OK. Do check your campaign settings again and contact adwords support if required.

    As stated above, AdWords will not spend more than your daily budget across 30 days. Beware though, that if you change your daily budget within 30 days then the "not spend" part is void.
