Any Google Adwords Gurus here?
at some stage in the far past had i tried Google Adwords and then given up on it for reasons i don't even remember now. perhaps the targeting was poor back then.
yesterday i decided to give it another try. but i have been less than impressed by the system.
i added a test campaign complete with a supplied list of keywords which i figured were relevant for my advert. but then later in the day after activating the account i get an (automatically sent) email about underperforming keywords--low click through rate--and a stern directive to address the problem.
but does Google direct me to a useful page explaining how to remedy the problem? no. instead i spend ages pouring over my account trying to figure out where the keywords are for the campaign. i still can't find them. so i have no chance of editing them at present.
a support query to Google has not met with a reply yet, so i figured i'd ask here if we have anyone who is familiar with the Adwords interface. i presume there are a few.
another thing i disliked intensely was Google's admonition to me for "slowing" the system and telling me they would charge me another $5 to restart the campaign after i had fixed it. this, after charging me an initial $5 to activate the campaign. in my opinion, they certainly don't try very hard to get the customer off to a good start. well, i'm understating how i truly feel at the moment. obviously i'm somewhat miffed with them.
