Hey guys,
I am in interested in knowing the top bid prices for about 100 keywords on google adwords. As oppose to Overture which has a page where you can check the bid pricing, what is the alternative for google? Is there some kind of PPC program which you can recommend me?

Any help greatly appreciated,

To the best of my knowledge there is no place to check. What I do is start out at a bid price and check the position of my ads. Then I raise it and recheck until I am number 1. Then I have a close idea what the bid prices are. Hope this helps.

This is such an overdone topic.

You think that if you find a $50 CPC word you will be rich? Here is the news - it's $50 because of a lot of things but mostly as it's a rare keyword.

Much better off working your get rich scheme on words that are high paying yet typed in often.

I think you misunderstood his question. I took it as he has 100 keywords and he wants to know how much to bid. He he looking to find out how much the top bids are on his keyword list. That make sense?

Exactly, my superiors would like a list to see how much it is going to cost them max for a specific keyword... and depending on the price they will think up a strategy!

I have campaign I run for myself and most of my keywords I can get top placement (#1 or #2) for about 12 to 15 cents. I know this from testing. I set the keyword bid amount and a few minutes later I search it and check it's position. Is this what you ar looking for Krooga?

For an estimated max CPC you could start with

But in practice you never have to pay these max. amounts. In most cases you can do fine with 10% of the suggested CPC amounts. So a better approach might be to simply ask how much they want to spend per day and with how much per click they feel comfortable. After a while you'll learn how those clicks convert and then you can ajust the CPC per keyword to what they are worth in terms of new orders and customers.

A good start for a monthly budgtet could be the price of a full colour ad in a typical magazine they are familiar with in terms of advertising.
