    Looking into google adwords

    I was wondering what experience you all have had with google adwords. Is it worth it? Any new clients?

    yes it sure is, its very low cost and so far this month alone, we have had over 20 new shoutcast customers alone as a result of it. I think we have had 7 new reseller customers. We dont advertise any other services on it though.

    Id recommend you at least try it, I personally love it!

    CPQIS, I agree with Sash! Google Adwords is very cost effective if you do it right. There are quite a few good "how-to" tutorials on the net as well. Definitely give it a go.

    It is a nice idea but the 15.00 per click is out of hand. as said above it can be good if done right.

    If you get the right keywords it will work well. We spend about $150 a month on adwords and they do pay for themselves every time.

    Can you explain a little more how "keywords" would lower what your paying?

    "Web Hosting" keyword may cost more than "Pittsburgh Host"

    It's the law of supply and demand.. More people bid on a keyword, the more you'll pay

    Yep, signup is quick and easy. It's the keyword research process and the process of writing effective ads that you should plan to spend time on.

    Is this at all worth it if you're going to start off with a low price per click, and low total price per day set up?

    I mean, you wont be on the top of the list... but you'll be there, and if a customer is looking hard enough, that means they're real interested in finding the "right" host, so the customers you'd get from google would probably take a nice long good look at your site - and if you believe you offer a great service, you could snatch up a lot of serious people that have done their HW.
    Thanks,

    A low click bid is worth playing around with. For some search phrases I've been successful with second page placement instead of paying high per-click costs to be at the top. But for some it doesn't work -- you have to figure out if it's a query for which people are likely to look beyond the first page.

    Low daily budget will only vary how often your ad appears in response to the queries you're bidding on. No harm at all in that; just don't expect to see your ad if you search those terms (something you should try to avoid doing too much; because doing so excessively will lower your clickthrough rate and with AdWords that means lower ad placement.

    I signed up, and used it to a regional market, and the results are outstanding.
