Why does Google Adwords Want $10 Minimum Bid? This is a question I hear all of the time.

You've spent time and money researching a market, more time and money putting a website together for that market and your ready to go live. You decide to give Adwords a shot because you've heard so many great things about it. You sign up and begin creating your account, getting excited with anticipation off all that high quality traffic your about to get. You put in the keywords and Boom! Google adwords gives you this message "Increase quality or bid to$10.00 to activate" What is going on here!!??

The thing about Google is they reward relevancy and penalize websites that are irrelevant. Who decides whats relevant and what's not? Google does based on it's algorithm from Google Bot. I have used $10 minimum bid as an example, it could be $5 or a $1 minimum bid. Your minimum bid should be cents not dollars.

How do you make Google Bot your friend? Make your website relevant in Google's eyes. This is done by a 3 pronged attack. First make sure your ad groups are "themed" around 1 keyword with variations. For instance ad group name -

Discount Laptops


discount laptops

cheap laptops

affordable laptops

really cheap laptops

By doing this your account is organized into a tightly knit group of keywords that makes it easy for you to write ads for. When you write your ad Google loves it when you use the keywords in your ad and so do searchers. This is an essential step in lowering your minimum bids.

Cheap Laptops

Discount laptops to fit

your budget. Free shipping


Google will consider this ad highly relevant to your ad group's keywords. Google will also bold any keyword that the searcher typed, in your ad. Which will catch your prospect's eye. In the above example if a searcher typed the keywords 'cheap laptops' all instances of the words cheap and laptops in your ad would be displayed bold.

Using the keywords on your landing page

Google and searchers love this also because you are focusing your landing page around the keywords that have been searched both Google Bot and the searcher will consider this very relevant, provided your supporting content stays on topic. This technique will increase your Quality Score which in turn will lower your minimum bids.

Lets recap the three pronged attack for lowering your minimum bids.

1. Tightly "themed" ad groups

2. Keywords in ad

3. Keywords used on landing page
