    I bought activated adwords acc from someone at bhw and it is first time using adwords, i used only bidvertiser before. So i created campaign, and i get impressions but no clicks.
    Maybe it is because i used general keywords, not really targeted one, but still i should be getting some clicks right ?

    How many impressions are you getting? What does your landing page look like? What keywords are you targeting? How much are you bidding on your keywords for? What is your Campaign's daily limit set to? Negative keywords? Ads used?

    I can think of some more questions, but I need more info.

    Remember that the 'G' is all about relevancy. If your page is not relevant to everything else, they'll let you know by charging you a ridiculous CPC, like $10.00 per click or not running your ads at all (even though it says "active")

    I agree. It's a number of things that could be out of whack. Answer the list of questions that jinx listed and make some changes. Sounds like they are sending your automated traffic which is primarly caused by a dead keyword choice.

    Also, the quality of your advertisement is a big factor. It needs to be well written, concise, and attractive. You need to be nit picky and think "if I saw this ad on a page would it get my attention?", "does it look trustworthy?", "does the domain it's linking to look sketchy?", "does the capitalization and visual appearance appeal?" You HAVE to be picky--even line arrangement and which words you emphasize make a difference. I have literally gotten a consistant 25%-30% CTR on some ads (little competition, but still a highly searched term) using very refined and attractive ad text.

    I used to get 10% CTR using direct linking and targeting "buying phrase". It's working great for me.

    You may try to focus on your "target market" / keyword to get more targeted audience for your offer, consequently, you will get higher CTR for more relevant ads.
