How to get more clicks from Adwords?

I have budget to spend $100USD per day on Adwords.

At this moment, I receive around 15 to 25 clicks only, and it only cost me only $10 to $20USD per day.

I have already raised bid to $1.5 per click, and $500USD/day budget in Adowrds setting, it does not show any difference in results.

What should I do to get more clicks?

And another question, which I type my keywords at Google.com, I did not see my own ads? My settings are global and any language.

Try using the content network. Bid significantly less for this , though.

Also if nothing is working, review your ad text and try to get some guidance from your competitors maybe?

What is the average position of your keywords?
Is it above 5? If not you may want to bid more and get in top 3-5 positions.

Also, do your ads reflect the keywords typed? Are you using the Dynamic Keyword insertion feature? Ex. {keyword: Health Insurance Quotes}? where "health insurance quotes" is teh default headline that will show up - if the keyword typed did not qualify for the headline. If the user had typed "Insurance California" - your ad headline will show "Insurance California" - and I think more users will click on this ad because they see the keyword they typed.

Great advice from Samseo - although be very careful that you are not bidding on anything that could be deemed a trademark, as you may well get repercussions. If you plan on using th squiggly brackets I would suggest you set up a separate adgroup for these words. Sometimes a word and/or phrase you bid on may not be quite appropriate to appear as the heading for your advert. For example you may bid on "widgets blue cheap" - this would not ba very enticing heading for an advert, whereas Cheap Blue Widgets would read better. But apart from that I find the squiggly brackets an extremely useful tool. Good Luck!

how about targetting more countries and languages if it makes sense for you?

My average position shown in Adwords is above 4.
The strange thing is that I can't see my own ads, if I type my keywords in Google.

My setting for Adwords is Global and Any Language.

If you bid on the content network start a new campaign and turn search off. Then geo-target to more affluent and/or frendly areas for your ads.

Also 20% to 25% of your search bid is a good starting point.
