Strange Est. First / Top Page Bids

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

My accounts keywords keep defaulting to an est first page bid of £0.01p and Est Top page bid of £0.30p.

 

Is anyone experiencing the same or are the tech guys developing an updated scoring system?

 

I've contacted support but keep getting not specific replies.

I would not rely much on these numbers, especially not on the 0.01., which usually means that there is not enough data for a reliable statistical analysis.
These are estimates with a wide margin of error.


Try to look for historical CPC for the given keyword. These are much more accurate and reliable, since represent the actual cost / price paid by advertisers (while the estimates factor in your own campaign and account performances).
