I've read here (http://blog.raventools.com/what-to-expect-new-adwords-campaign/) that adwords is cautious with new campaigns, and doesn't give good traffic right off the bat. This seems to be true, since my brand new website, while getting above average QS 7-8, is not getting traffic (10-20 clicks per day). Same keywords get tons more traffic on a competitor's website, which is my friend, so I've seen his numbers. I am adwords certified (I know everybody is nowadays:)), and have built many successful campaigns, however never had to deal with brand new websites.
The website I am advertising is custom build with users in mind, good content, proper SEO approach, etc. Most of my previous campaigns and websites get 9-10 Quality score ads. So I am leaning towards believing that the article holds some truth.
The question: Since I am getting low traffic, and have to prove myself to adwords, does it make sense to increase my bid to get this process done faster, since adwords is asking more money per click to deliver the ads?
Thanks, as usual you guys are awesome!
