Let's say you're bidding in a market with no competition, are $0.01 - $0.03 clicks possible?

Hi Michael,
The Actual CPCs are determined by your Quality Score, Max CPC Bids, etc., so no one can guarantee that you can receive CPCs that efficiently.  I'd suggest you focus on Keywords that are high priority to you, relevant to your business, and have a good chance to lead to a conversion for your business.  That typically is the best approach to AdWords vs trying to figure out what your CPCs might be.  

 

That being said, I have received CPCs very efficiently recently, although not at $0.01.

It's certainly possible, but I think you'll see better results with a slightly higher bid. At .01-.03 it's going to be a very basic ad with no extensions, and most likely will not serve at the top. I think you'll find at that low of a bid that your impression share will not be that high either.

It is possible but it may affect your adrank. If you want to get ROI then you need to bid higher. Also it depends on the Target Location.

It has been 15 years since  the introduction of AdWords. I think there is no single word which hasn't been bid.. In practice, the "actual" bid for a given keyword has gone up during the years and a new "threshold" has been set.

So even if in theory you can bid  that low in practice  you will lose in the auction (even with a high QS).
