    I started Ad words 2/ 3 weeks agao and got some clocks w/ 1 campaign, added 2 more new campaigns-unrelated, with new keywords etc... NO MORE CLICKS with the orginal campaign that seemed to work and NO CLICKS on the other 2 campaigns. I raised my bids on all 3 camapigns added new keywords, modified the ads and NOTHING!!!:eek:

    What gives? Is Google playing with me and wants me to give an astronomical bid to all campaigns??? ANY Info is greatly appreciated!!!

    GG:confused:

    Sounds like a slap to me. Check your QS to be sure...

    Yes it sounds like you were slapped and you can see on the interface by just clicking on an adgroup and looking at the minimums per keyword bid. If all or almost all the words have very high minimums you have been slapped for the entire domain. I have been slapped today as well.

    Definitely sounds like the google slap. I like to start on the msn or ypn network, turn my keywords etc before I start a campaign on Google. I take my highest converting keywords and then put them on Google. I try to start my bids a little high to get good clickthroughs on google and then slowly bring down my bids until I find what works best. This is just my strategy and I don't make any recommendations one way or another. You can lose money faster than you can make it. I monitor my campaignes on the networks like a hawk. That is why I test test test and start on other networks where the bids are lower. You may even find you can make more than on google depending on your niche, keywords, etc....

    Check your keywords if you're running on Search network. Check if your QS is below 4..if so, then google will not display your ads at all.

    Few months ago, i tried to target all kind of keywords with one landing page. I managed to get a range of Quality Scores of 3-7 for all of my keywords. Of course, those keywords which Google rated with 3 QS did not even get a chance to be shown on the network.

    Then i tried Dynamic Keyword Insertion for both of my ads and my landing page and amazingly, most of my keywords started off with a QS of 6-7..

    So...check your QS for your keywords before raising your bids and coming to an conclusion whether you've been slapped.

    Good luck :)
