    So I am bidding on a specific keyword that has no competition whatsoever. When I try to bid less than 82c CPC it does not stay on first page. Since there is no competition whatsoever shouldn't I expect to have a less CPC and not 82c ?

    There's really no such thing as having no competitors. Somewhere, someone is bidding on the same keywords. There can be many reasons you don't see competitors.

    Google also calculates first page bid estimates based on all-time data. Whoever was using those keywords in the past, even if they are not currently advertising, will be figured in the calculations.

    Two questions I have

    1) How can you say that the keyword have no such competition? Which tool you are using or is it your own personal assessment?

    2) What's your quality score on that particular keyword?


    Regards

    If you see impressions and clicks, I suggest you to ignore this "below first page bid" message.
    Check you Avg. Position and search impression share lost (rank). if you're good on both you got nothing to worry about.
