Hi, Hedy.

Can you try again? It seems you tried to change the experimental bid before the experiment was started.

You should not have two accounts running for the same or similar websites, as you're violating this policy: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/2600168?hl=en

So please decide which account you want to use and close the other one.

Then test again to see if experimental changes are reflected when you perform them after starting your experiment.

Hello,

 

What was the experiment settings at campaign level i.e. Control and experiment with equally distributed percentage or something else?

 

You can make the bid changes within the AdWords interface and based on what percentage of auction will run for experiment and what for control, those bidding will be applied by AdWords automatically.

 

Also by default your experiment runs for 30 days and after that once the experiment is complete, you can launch the changes fully which you actually tested during that experiment.

 

I hope you set up the experiments as described here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2375383?hl=en

Thanks for your advice.
It said that “Google will notify advertisers if they violate this policy. Multiple violations may result in penalties, including account suspension.”
But now we didn't receive any notifications from Google.
But we will still follow it.
Thanks again
