    ROI = Return on Investment
    CPC=Cost per click

    before I go on are you setting up an adwords account?

    - ROI stands for "return on investment"

    - I presume you are talking about ppc (payperclick) networks in regards to lowest and maximum bids. This is basically how much you are willing to pay per click.

    - Yes the free WordTracker tool is fine to begin with.

    - cpc means Cost Per Click. If you are planning to use to drive traffic to your site you will pay a certain amount per person who clicks on your ad depending on a number of factors.

    - What exactly are you talking about (which site) eg which site is the coupon for?

    - Long TAIL keywords are basically niche search terms you can focus on when you do seo or adwords ads etc...

    You Really Need to Start Learning About Marketing 101

    Worldly Panther is right about The Prince
    Of Print
    , the Late Gary

    There are a lot of bad information out there
    that you don't want to waste your time and
    money on them.

    But, I'll show you where to start, there is a
    book by Terry Dean which is very good.

    I'm not sure if Terry is back on internet marketing
    but he retired after making millions at the age of
    28 few years ago.

    This book I'm about to share with you is awesome
    and I believe you are going to fall in love with it.

    It will take you by hand and when you finish, you
    will come to realize that you made a good decision
    to come to BTW.

    It will shorten your learning curve by π/4 rad
