Hi Guys,

 

I just messed around a bit in the UI - here's what I found out: (not that any of this ran live)

 

I set my daily budget to $50,000.00US and was only able to set a CPC at $1.000.00US

 

Then I set the daily budget to $100,000.00US and was only able to set a CPC at $1.000.00US

 

I've never worked with these kind of numbers on a daily basis so I'm not sure what this means but it was fun to try anyways.

Looks like $1000 USD is the new limit. Thanks, Tom.

Better double check your settings. ;-)

Hey Dustin, I'm unable to confirm or deny anything regarding maximum possible bid... Just wanted to predict a "As much as you're willing to pay." post...I know it's coming. Smiley Happy Also interested in funding out the answer...for kicks. -Tom

Pretty sure it's $100 USD. Things change pretty quickly with AdWords, though. ;-)

No way that it is $100, thats really low I would think. Insurance leads and such surely go for more than that.

Perhaps there's not a limit, beyond not accepting a bid higher than the daily budget. I just tested - but only to $500.

No problem.  

 

It was on an inactive account, I reset it back to a measly 5.00/daily and .05/cpc when I was done.  Smiley Happy The change history is sure going to look funny if someone ever checks on it though.

 

With the accounts I deal with, even the ones with 5 figure monthly budgets, I couldn't even fathom bidding $10/click...$1000.00 is well beyond me.

I need to be able to bid above $1000 to knock off a competitor who has apparently reached the magical $1000/click bid price.  His ads are showing predominantly over mine and I'm capped as well.  Anyone know if Google will allow special requests?
