I just checked on of my clients' account and saw required minimum bids in the amounts $13, $14, $17, $32, and $100. Anyone else noticed this or is it just an error?

Minimum Bids, or First Page Bids?

I'm not sure how the 1st page bids are shown in Adwords Editor. These prices appear in the column for Min. CPC (USD). Do you know?

i use editor and see min. bids column as well, they just haven't released an editor update yet -- poster_boy has to be right that it's first page bids we're seeing

all i see is standard too, but sure hope my competitors see those $100 minimums.

Is your client bidding on "mesothelioma" by any chance?

Maybe the $100 bid is for the term 'google'

actually my Client is a Fortune 200 company. It probably has to do with getting clearance to use trademarked terms in the keyword phrases (trademarks which they owb but which requires submission of a form), but still. I had never seen min. bids at those levels used before.

So I guess no one else has either.

You will get a flag about the Trademark issue.

I had it happen once, but, the clients lawyers didn't like the language on the form which apparently gives Google rights to the Trademark.

I also see the same thing on some of my poor QS keywords. $100 first page bid. I actually saw this on some OK QS keywords also after I switched them to exact match.
