I have an adwords campaign that targets both the USA and the UK, and I have a restricted budget (I could get more clicks by increasing my budget). When does the next days budget go into effect? For example, I've exhausted my $X for the day - is the next day european time, US time?

Thanks

Adwords uses the Pacific Time for all of its date and time calculations.

Thanks - and do you know if google considers the budget day to be 12 to 12 PST?

If this is the case then my new day's budget starts 8 a.m. in the UK, which is good. But I suspect that my budget gets mostly used up by surfers over there, and there is no budget left to show adwords in north america (by our morning). I guess the campaigns need to be split by continent.

... there is no budget left

So, why don't you go down with max CPC? Yes, your average position goes down, but also your average CPC.

If I have 100 UISD budget for a day, I prefer 120 clicks for 83 cents on position 4.9, then 100 clicks for 1 dolar on position 3.8. What do you think?

But anyway - it is very good idea to have a saparate campaing for US only.

I agree - but my experience in my market has been that there is a very big difference in the return for ads in the top left position vs ads on the right side. Even though the number of impressions is the same the number of clicks is dramatically higher.

The systems update at midnight pacific time (8am in the UK), at that point the clicks/impressions reset so you'd have to assume the daily budget resets at that time.
