or expand your targeting, i dont think that by raising your bid you will see a significant increase considering your current positioning.
you may increase it a bit, but i dont see a huge gain in impressions.
Using broad match keywords will also get you more impressions, but watch your query performance reports and add negatives.

Do you mean i can't target ask.com without picking the whole network instead picking sites myself?
No, you must opt into Google's search partners for your ads to be displayed on their site. Google does not allow you to target specific partner sites. (the partner network is different from the content network) If you choose to run only on Google search you could go to ASK.com and run your ads there. I wouldn't however recommend ASK search. My experience with them is full of click fraud.
Does just rising bid or daily budget increase clicks?
Just to speak tothis question in a very direct way:
Your maximum bid is directly related to your ad's position (also called 'rank') on the page. Raising your max bid tends towards moving your ad up the page - though bid in not the only factor in an rank: quality score is a key factor as well.
Daily budget is is directly related to how often your ad will show. But, for example, if your keywords are capable of delivering only 500 impressions per day, and you are are already getting 500 impressions with your current budget, then raising the daily budget will not cause you to get more impressions.
