Hi Shibin,

In contrast to some versions of Poker, there is no upper limit in AdWords in regard to how high you are allowed to bid when specifying your max CPC values. Hence theoretically you may set them to any values no matter how high they are. In reality, i have never seen bids higher than $100, however, I am just one of millions of online advertisers and some industries like luxury car rentals or airplane charters might be pretty expensive in terms of bidding.

Best,
Lakatos

Hi @Shibin B further to @Lakatos's answer, I'd be extremely surprised if there were any businesses out there that needed a Max CPC bid of more than $1000.

 

Are you sure you're talking about the right setting?  Max CPC is the maximum amount you're prepared to pay per click on one of your Ads.

$1000 is indeed the maximum possible CPC bid, and you'd be insane to want to bid that high, let alone higher.

I've seen advertisers bid that high twice in my life, and they were both idiots who thought their high bids would intimidate their competition out of trying to bid for first place.

And then I had to explain to those people that they were paying $900+ per click because their completion was just as crazy as they were.

It's the AdWords equivalent of "playing chicken" -- you hope the other driver is saner than you, and pulls out first. If you're equally crazy, you get a head-on collision.

Michael seems correct. I tried to enter a bid higher than $1,000 and got the 'Bid is too large" warning. Honestly, have never seen it before ... Smiley Happy
