History of First Page Bid Estimates?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Is there a way to see the historical first page bid estimates? Have a client that doesn't understand why adwords is more expensive now than five years ago. I believe there is more competition in his segment. I'd like to also show him that first page bid estimates have been rising of the last few years. Is there a way to do that?

 

Thanks

Good morning.

 

No, the program doesn't store first page bid estimates. I'm afraid that if you haven't been running and keeping offline reports with things like first page bid estimates or quality scores (which are also not stored), then you won't have access to that data.

 

(I would suggest, although I'm sure this has already occurred to you, that you begin running offline reports with this kind of data and keeping them for future use.)
