Can I choose to not run my ad until I am ready to incur the cost?

I am just getting a website built and running, writing content etc. I want to use the keyword tool.

After all, I don't want to run an ad for a site that is not even up and running yet.

Hi @Ron C,

 

Yes, you are always in control of your spend and account operations at all times. You can create your ads / campaigns and pause them until you are ready. 

 

You can use the Keyword Planner by visiting here

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Apart from the good suggestions by @James_Clemens, I recommend you to set the budget and bids to minimum while setting up the campaign. So that if you forget to pause the campaign/adgroup/ad, only a small cost will be incurred.
