  • Focus on CPC
    •  Manual: you can manually select your bid and then adwords will consider that bid only, adwords will not apply its algo to optimize the bidding, in this option you get better control over bid and most ofthe time this is the option we choose. Adwords will cyharge you per click only and this bid is fixed from your end
    • Auto CPC: In this option you give the liberty to adwords to select your bidding and we do not recommend this since we do not have much faith on the intelectuality of adwords, so better not try this. But even if you want to try and you do not have enough time to go everytime and change your bidding, we recommend bid limit for adwords auto cpc, click on auto cpc and you will find the checkbox right there.

Just below of CPC bidding you will find another checkbox which is known as ECPC, thsi will help you to optimize your conversion with its own algo and if checked, will like to increase the bidding for those keywords where it will find the probability of conversion is higher.

  • Focus on CPA(also known as conversion optimizer) : This option will allow you to select how much you are willing to spend per conversion but you can only use this option when you have more than 15 conversion per month, so it will depend upon your history and if that is not meet, you will ne able to use this option.
  • Focus on CPM: Here you will be charged per 1000 Impressions. Please note that we do not prefer this option as we have never found this option to be profitable.
  • Flexible Bid startegy: It gives you many flexibility over bidding, just click on the option and you will be able to find different bidding strategies.
