Hi I was wondering if someone can help me out. 


I have noticed that the auto CPC has rising significantly and my costs per click have rising dramatrically. 

When I first started it cost me on average about $1 per click or less now the same key words cost $4,95 and one cost me $18 why has this occurred?

This is typical when the system starts to accumulate data about your a campaign performance. If CTR goes down, QS goes down, and the bid starts climbing up.


What are your QSs?
