Over Daily Budget

Let me guess, a little more, a little less, who cares, right?

So I set a daily budget and I'm 3 clicks over it for yesterday.

Today I turned off Content Match. All the clicks came from CM so forget that. I know, good luck getting any from the actual Yahoo site search.

Is going over the daily budget a frequent occurrence?

My account balance still doesn't include the $25.00 credit I was supposed to get for signing up. Does this mean they are going to start charging my credit card as soon as the deposit is used?

The whole reason for signing up was to give it a small trial run without spending a fortune only to find no return. The more I can earn from Yahoo clicks, the more I'll spend in advertising but so far, I've earned nothing.

After only one day with YSM and reading some posts here, I'm beginning to get discouraged.

Okay... so going over budget must be really common for everyone or it never happens. Or maybe it's just not as important to some as it is to me. If I were paying several dollars a click, that could really add up. I'm used to seeing it go over the daily budget on Adwords once in a while but that usually evens out by the end of the month. I just want to be sure it's the same with Yahoo.

Thought I'd give it a try in this topic.

Last week I started a consumer campagne with 5k words in 8 adgroups. Avg. CPC for all words is 0.10

For the past days my cost were about 40/day, while I had to set the recommended daily budget to 220(!). Today after adding some more words the recommended budget is raised to 330 while my daily spendings still do not exceed the 40. I already disabled the content network.

Anyone got a clue why the budget system is behaving like this?

Nevermind my last post, I found more info in the right Adwords section: [webmasterworld.com...]
