CPC maxinum?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi there everybody. Please help again.

 

I have changed my Bid Strategy Maximum CPC to ZAR30.00, and yet I am still being billed for ZAR50.00's and ZAR80.00 somethings...

 

How do I keep my CPC to below a specified amount? My daily limit can be gone in 2 or 3 clicks !!!

 

Many thanks.

 

Wayne.

You must have some other setting overriding this such as enhanced CPC or maybe keyword level bids.

 

Open up your keywords tab and see if the bids are all set to the default amount as a first step.

 

Then open up your bidding setting and see if there are any of the advanced options activated...

 

Report back if this doesn't identify the source of the problem.
