Bid low and there are so few clicks. Bid high you get more clicks but few sales resulting in a loss.
Not sure if this is Adwords' fault but if it continues, I'll be out of Adwords.
How long can I keep on bleeding?
Same campaigns, same ads and keywords. Lower conversions across the board, even when I limit the content network. I think it's the search network maybe? The "search" sites that already have a search done for visitors when they get to the page. (via ppc no doubt)
I created an identical campaign on yahoo for comparison and I can't believe it -- Yahoo's conversions are more than double Google's. (*for my particular market/site).
I too noticed Yahoo brings better conversion for certain keywords. But since they lost MSN, I was a bit wary.
Now with G not converting, its time for a rethink.

Having read the threads I think i will try Yahoo for a week or two and compare the two for the same ad and same budget.

Yeah, it's not the easiest game in the world in fact it's getting increasingly harder, but once you find something that converts well, you can usually ride it for a long time. It's a great feeling coming home from a surf, a game of golf or whatever, checking your stats and realising you made a days wages+ off of some campaign you set up twelve months a go.
My advice mate is persist. Good Luck:)
