    Once i waited for 7 days till i figured out i can contact Google to review it in 24 hours. New time i waited for 4 days and made contact again. Now i don't waste my time waiting, i contact support instantly after i create new campaign or an ad-group. lol
    Still 24 hours is a long wait. I'm jealous of you who get approved in 15min...

    I've been wating since 4:30am, and its now 6:12pm. It still says "eligible" and shows 0 clicks, 0 impressions, 0 everything, but I started recieving traffic about 3-4 hours ago. The only way thing that changed on Adwords is the "billing" tab, my balance went down from $100.10 to $95.82. I hope this is the correct amount, because that means I got about 50 clicks for $5, and Adwords says with a $30/daily budget and a max cpc bid limit of .22 that I should only receive something like 80-130 clicks per day. So hopefully it is correct, but probably just hasn't updated. lmao

    What is your guys best method to get cheap but targeted clicks for high competition keywords? The settings I use are:
    Search Networks only > Allow Google search partners
    Computers & Laptops, Tablets with full browsers only
    Bidding option > Focus on clicks > automatic bidding > CPC bid limit: $0.22
    Budget > $30.00/day (until I get the conversions nailed down, then will move it up to $50-$75)

    I don't know if their is any "adwords tricks" or something, but if their is or any optimization tips you would like to share, I would be more then happy to give my input.
