Hey I guess you rae using automatic bidding option in which AdWords sets your bids to get clicks within your target budget. I would suggest you to change it to Manual Bidding and set a bid you can afford per click.

 

Thanks!

Hi guttermanofwny,

 

Welcome to the community

 

  • You are paying too much because your estemated CPC bidding is high for your targeted keywords.
  • If i am not wrong you have choosen automatic bidding option in your campaign setting where google adjust your CPC bids to bring you the most clicks possible within your daily budget.You may try mannual bidding option where you can limit you max CPC bid that you are willing to pay for a click,But it may not be give you good result where the compeiton is too high.
  • The best way is try to improve the Quality Score of your keywords,which help to reduce the cpc bid.

Hope it helps

Best Of Luck

 

Regards,
