    I am about to start a campaign to secure signups for a poker room we are affiliated with.

    So I had the not unreasonable idea (in my opinion) of a pay per click campaign. That idea appears to be blown out of the water however now I have seen the suggested bids in the poker niche.

    Would appreciate it if you could answer one or all of the questions below, would be a great help thanks.

    1. Are the suggested bids on google accurate? Are people really paying this much PER CLICK ? Here is a screenshot from keywords related to poker I just checked.

    2. If you were setting up to advertise for people to sign up to a poker site, how would you go about it? What advertising platform/network might you use? Any advice for me here, just trying to plan out a short trial campaign now that google appears to be a no go?

    3. Can you recommend any tools apart from google keyword checker to find good pay per click keywords to use?

    4. If you have any other advice to offer that might help me with creating the strategy for attracting poker players to sign up to a room, can you share it?

    Thanks

    Google always puts the suggested amount high but you don't need to go 'that' high. They will be close to those amounts thought.
    Start a campaign with figures you want and see, everything can be altered; phrases, figures, times of running
    I like Semrush for all my KW research

    Thanks @MikeFrost SEMRush is $99 a month for the cheapest version, I take it you think it's worth buying at that price, or you wouldn't have recommended it? I'm just looking to run one campaign at the moment.

    Yup, had a client in the addictions niche, was paying $45 a click. Treatment center was 35,000 a month though, so to them was worth it
