    Depends on your market dude.

    There are guys spending $5 a day and there are guys spending $10 700 a day.

    Max CPC when you start out I'd say no higher than $1

    Unless you are promoting a really high ticket item...

    Cheers.

    -there IS a thanks button you know;)

    Like nowimhere said, that depends heavily on your market. If you're promoting acai, expect nothing less than $1 cpc. I've seen them 5x that. If you're promoting something in your niche market, say you sell used legos, probably going to be around $.05 for keywords. I've heard of people spending 60k a day. Just make sure your page can convert and start very small and keep reinvesting profits. I recommend you dl market samurai if you don't already have it, incredibly useful tool for finding good keywords, trends, and competition.

    if u know those keywords+landing page will convert, spending 1 million (if u have) is a wise decision. if u want to do 'campaign blast', then i suggest $200. the problem that people face when it comes to adword is they don't know what keyword will convert (some know). another problem is whether the landing page will do the job.

    so, what is ur status right now?

    I would get some animation going on your page. I know...it is annoying...but it WORKS :)
    And why not set the resort bar down instead of up - than it should get less clicks.

    haha mate, animations? Link me on some instructions

    What do you mean by resort bar? The bar with the "links" "about" etc etc?

    Ohh wow haha you're using the pluginid template :p
    You've got a typo on the 3rd bullet point.

    Gofobu was trying to tell you to put the navigation bar down the bottom in the hope less people click those and more people click your affiliate/money links.

    like most are saying it depends on your market. I'm in a super competitive market myself and am spending around $1,500 usa a day. My max CPC is set at $100 just to be able to run but my actual cpc is around .45.
