    Okay, let me gather some back story here. One week ago: Out of the blue I received a $100 Adwords voucher in the mail a month ago. So I figure, well I do have a nice website running let me try it.

    So, the first day I try it, of course I didn't see much (reviewing my ads) so I took off and did some things. Came back and was shocked, I had made $60 on the site I had a CPA offer on + Adsense, in the span of about 3 hours.

    So, I was excited and just kept watching the money come in, at the end of the day (which of course wasn't the full day I had made around $160 + Adsense.

    So, next came around and I did the same thing, nothing... I had around $150 again.

    Now, the next day...(Monday, note... This all went down on Sat - Sun) I didn't get many hits nor did I make much, around $50..

    Next after that and so on it kept getting worse, so I figured it was only good around Sat - Sun (because this offer does target teens, so it makes sense)

    Okay, so next Saturday (Today) I start my campaign back up on Adwords, of course they have to review my ads again and all that, well now the keyword I made most clicks off of I have a quality score of 3/10... With Keyword relevance: Poor

    Now, this wasn't like that for last week, does this shit happen all the time on Adwords? Am I missing something? Because I haven't really changed anything and now it's saying my main money making keyword relevance is shit?

    Any reason why this would happen? I'm still pretty new with Adwords but, honestly Adwords isn't too hard to understand. All I know is my keyword was working fine last week and made some serious money and now my ad isn't being shown for that keyword because it relevance is too poor...

    Nevermind, I wasn't paying enough attention to my CTR, guess it's too low.

    Shit happens! You probably changed some ad copy that got you less CTR and therefore lower quality score in general.

    Actually, I think I accidentally had show on content networks clicked. I'm thinkin' that was the problem.
