    Yesterday, my daily budget for adwords was set at $10
    I have charges to my account for $80

    WTF?????

    How can the charges exceed my budget?
    I see i accidentally set the CPC to $7.50 instead of $0.75, but surely the thats the point of the daily budget, to stop it from wracking up a ridiculous amount? What if 100 people clicked, would I owe google $7500 when my budget was $10????

    Does somebody please have a real contact email for adsense, those stupid forms are ridiculous.

    fuck

    FYI,

    Adwords can charge you upto 30 times of your budget.

    If you budget is $10, it can charge you upto $10*30 = $300 even on same day.

    no they can't, read the above reply - they can charge 20% more clicks. otherwise whats the point of a daily budget?

    then can you please show me where on the adwords site it says that they can charge you 30 times your daily budget?
