    what is the problem with google minimum bid currently
    Hello, friends. Recently I set up an adwords account and start to promote my web sites. However, when I add an ad group and set the minimun bid for my keywords say hotel, I got instant inactive for search status, google tell me if I want to active these keywords I need to increase the minimum bid $10.00 to active. I can not believe the words, I need to bid more than 10 bucks to get a click for a general keyword such as hotel.

    I still got no response from google support, please give your opinion or your experience with google adwords, Thanks a lot

    Add some more words in with that word hotel. Not only will you get your click costs down and your ad active, it'll be more targetted. It's just too general of a term and a highly competitive one at that.

    Yes, finally I got a letter from google support dept told me that the selected keywords are very general. So I have to choose more specific keywords to get clicks and high quality score. It is time to do more keyword research works and try my ad again.

    TrustNo1, thank you for your quick reply
