    How come if i go to google adwords/keywords and i search for the term 'music forum' i get a cpc of 10 cents, yet when i go to set an ad campaign it jumps up to $1.30 ?

    Last time i used a 'free coupon' it reverted back to an old account i forgot i had and it actually cost me money !!!!

    When i requested the details of the old account so i could close it they denied me access ?

    Hey Google ..........wtf ?

    :mad:

    Honan wisely pointed out that the settings for the 'free coupons' finish in 2037 .....sneaky for sure

    Everyone knows that if you say "google" really slow, it sounds like "stuck up and taking over internet..."

    What you see in the keyword tool is all ways going to be an estimation, if not a lower CPC rate then if you are a new advertiser you are going to pay far higher rates as your quality score is lower. And from experience do not trust the Google Keyword tool is is just an estimation?
