It it suppose that when the "Quality score" is great the minimum bid should be 0.11 to the keyword be listed on the search result. Am I right?

Now I created some campaigns and those has the QS Great, but the minimun bid is 0.35 in some and 0.55 in others.

Can you plese explain me what is wrong?

How long has your campaign been running?

Actually, in most cases, if the QS is listed as "great" the minimum bid is under ten cents - mine are pretty much all three and four cents.

But possibly your campaign hasn't been running long enough for QS to settle down, or maybe there is something else going on?

I think if I were you, I'd email support and ask them.

There is no one set dollar amount that "Great" minimum bids default to. I've had situations where my minimum bid actually displayed $0.00

The minimum bid is an arbitrary value determined by Google. Relatively speaking if your QS is great, your min bid will be low. If your QS is poor, your min bid will be high. There is no fixed bid range for each QS grade.

anyone else finding major increases in minimum bids again? Sigh it's just getting out of control again....
Also does anyone find that talking to Google reps helps any?
