    Google ad words -grrrr

    A little ticked off at google ad words right now, I found a 2 word phrase that nobody else was using which was related pretty closely with my ad. I didnt notice it until it had already clocked up 900+ impressions in a couple of day with my ad at the #1 spot (of course lol).
    Finding a good phrase with me being the only advertiser blew me away, so I changed the wording of my ad to more directly target the key phrase... but too late because Google removed my add because it fell below their "minimum CPM rate". It appears if your in the number one spot you have to maintain a high CPM.

    I've not tried Adwords cos compared to Overture and other PPC setups, I found their system too complicated. I wish they just change it to a normal PPC setup like Overture.

    Getting 5 cent clicks on Google adwords

    If you are 'creative' about your keywords, you can get hundreds of clicks on Google adwords for only 5 cents. I'll paste in an article in my last newsletter that explains how:

    So how do you get clicks for 5 cents at Google? The
    secret is in doing proper research for your keywords
    and trying every combination of keywords that you can
    possibility think of.

    Let's say for example that you have a site that sells wine.
    At the time of writing, the minimum bid on Google for
    "wine shop" is 57 cents and the minimum bid for "buy
    wine" is 35 cents. And that's just the minimum which will
    likely put you at the bottom of the list of 8 advertisements
    and get you very few clicks.

    Instead, have a look at these combination of keywords:

    wine sales
    wine stores
    wine sale
    purchase wine
    discount wine
    wine price
    wine cheap
    wine shops
    order wine
    wine on line
    wine prices
    wine club
    wine cheapest

    All of the above keyword combinations are available for
    five cents.

    It doesn't matter what business you are in, there are some
    keywords or keyword combinations that other people
    have missed. I have even managed to get clicks for web
    hosting traffic at 5 cents per click, which is probably the
    most difficult area to get web traffic for.

    The secret is in coming up with lots of keywords and
    combinations of keywords. Here are a few more ideas:

    * Try the pleural versions of the keyword.
    * Try different verb forms - make, making etc.
    * Try combining two keywords into one word without
    spaces, for example instead of buy car try buycar
    * Use misspelt words


    The more you think about it, the more keywords you can
    find, and although each keyword or keyword combination
    might only bring you a few clicks, if you have enough
    keywords (and that might mean having hundreds or even
    thousands), in total they will bring you a nice steady stream
    of traffic to buy your product or service.

    I rather link Ad Words, but I've never tried Overture. I've been tempted to do so, but which produces the better result?

    Overture or Google which is better?

    Really, some people swear by overture, and others love google. I think both work well, but they work in different ways, and require different strategies. The best option is to sign up for both.
