Why when I try to raise my CPC bid for keywords, does the system say nothing will change?
I am trying to set some automations, so that when my CTR is above .5% for any keyword on a given campaign, that I raise my CPC bid to top of page bid. Whenever I preview this automation, google tells me that by putting it into affect, nothing will change. I have raised my daily budget to account for the increased CPC bid to go top of page for this automation.
I have also tried raising my CPC Bid for certain keywords individually and when I preview the changes, the system says nothing will change. Why is this? I have certain words I want to move higher up in the search que. I know fit with my website plays a roll in googles calculation of where and ad should appear, but I though CPC bid factored into that as well.
Any and all advice would be much appreciated.

When you say that "the system says nothing will change" - I'm not quite sure what you're saying. Are you seeing some specific error or information message pop up on the page?
What page are you on--where are you trying to change your bids?
