    Potentially you're not the highest bidder neither possess the highest QS, you competitor could bid $10 and have 10/10 QS, that's why you can't place on top.

    I think you're running a burner campaign, PPC shouldn't be that expensive, my CPC is around $0.1 to $0.05 and I gather at least 50 leads a day, consider Bing as your alternative :D

    Wow, you are only spending up to 5c per click. That has to be some sort of record. Is that in adwords or Bing?

    Shephard is right, there could be many advertisers using the same keywords. This increases the chances that a lot have great QS as well. A rule of thumb is that about 20% of advertisers will have a great QS of 7 to 10. So if there are 20 of you, four or five will be in that range. But if there are 200, that's 40 to 50. In your case, as Shephard said, some may be bidding $10 and thus outranking you.

    The niche you said you're in, I'm not surprised and indeed there is likely hundreds of advertisers. At least you are a step ahead of 90% of them with a great QS but do try to improve, every little bit helps.

    Assuming you are running a search network,you should see change usually within the hour.
    Ad position determines whether people will click on your ad or not.
    Try making more adgroups with closely matched keyword sets and more ad copies with relevant keyword mentioned in them.

    Cheers!!

    It's not the whole picture (BID & QS). There are a lot of other things which one has to take into consideration. Adwords is simple and complex at the same time.
    Without checking the adwords account no one can exactly tel you the reason of why you are not getting a click !

    Hi,
    There is nothing to surprise. People will be having better QS than you and they would be paying more bid than you. You have to increase your bid.

    Those prices are very high so you are in a very highly targeted and satuarate niche.

    Try to bid on "cheap insurance" once

    You could have the best ad, best website but you would need to pay closet to $50 per click to be on first page....

    Try a different niche that is not as competitive and save yourself from bankruptcy!
