    I started to advertise a campaign recently and I noticed that CPC increased ALOT (or am I doing anything wrong?)
    6 months ago I could get website link clicks from UK for around 0.30 , now I can get them for $2, even more.
    This is the average bidding which it shows me when I'm creating an ad and that's also the amount it charged me.
    This is happening to all countries, could get only shitty countries for 0.40 cpc


    Is this happening to everyone? What CPC do you guys have and on which countries?

    very lucky always hard for me to get CPC down

    OP did you change your target crowd at all
    and maybe try to change per impressions, or if thts what you use then maybe switch back to per click

    bad ads that get no click when paying per impressions can ruin your budget

    I'm using cost per click.
    I thought that it may be because of low converting ads but I created a new ad account and when I was trying to create an ad it was showing me the same insane CPC averages.

    There are many reasons affecting the price:
    Trust account facebook
    The content of the article
    I am using the account of a the agency, it is very good

    How long have you been running this campaign? Remember, FB needs time to optimize. You cost should go down in about 5 days from start date.

    Hi,

    Your ad copy is not grabbing enough ATTENTION, Even 0.30$/Click is very high.
    Can i have a look at your ad copy? Also your targeting seems to be OFF.
