your daily average budget is calculated over a full month. so it could be that your first week average is $200 and your last week average is $30.

and poor value clicks are part of yahoo search marketing.

the best advice I or anyone else can give you is to use adwords or msn, and keep an eye out for the next yahoo update.

Your daily budget does not mean anything. Basically, if your daily is set to $50, Yahoo calculates that as $600 per month (not $50 per day). Technically, you could burn your entire $600 the first day. If you did that, your ads would stop showing.

Conact Yahoo and get them to put you on manual deposit.

thanks for your response

i think $50 * 30 set my monthly budget $1500 instead of $600
and as you said i can burn our in one day only...

but what if my daily average cliks remain up to $20 and for a month total average clicks is $20 *30 is $600 so what about rest of amount $900 ($1500 month - $600 spend), can i utilize that remaining $900 to continue my a/c

Sometimes my fingers are quicker than my brain $1500 per month would be correct.

If you actually deposited $1500 and spent only $600 you would have a $900 balance. Clicks are deducted from your existing balance as they occur.
