AdWords Automated Bidding Strategies

Some of these work very well given enough conversions data, but beware of not setting a max cpc bid limit and beware of messages telling you that spend is being massively limited by your max bid limit e.g. 98% of spend limited! It’s telling me, explicitly, that I could be getting a huge amount of extra traffic, an, implicitly, that I wouldn’t be paying any extra for conversions. However, the bid strategy above is using a Max CPC that is *the same* as the target CPA! So unless the conversion rate gets better than 100% !

AdSense Earnings Last 12 Months

Google AdSense can make you a reasonable amount of money from your web site if you are in the right niche, and you have a decent amount of traffic. PPCNI has an absolutely tiny amount of traffic compared to most sites, but still managed to make approx $733 USD / €630 EUR / £570 GBP in a year from AdSense. It’s easy to sign up and become part of the Google Display Network if you want to give it a try.
