So I've recently had my AdWords campaign going and was doing reasonably well $3 for every $1 spent. Lately over past two weeks my views have skyrocketed from @200 a day to @2000 a day, my clicks went from @2 a day with 1 phone conversion to @10 a day and ZERO phone calls, so i switched from adwords express to adwords so i would have more control, cut out all the window shopping, kept the same ad, eliminated every thing except search engine view only. Now my ad is back down on views @700 today but still ZERO clicks and ZERO calls. Something smells fishy. Same ad that was getting clicks and calls now no clicks, no calls but @500-700 views a day. Any thoughts?

if Google Adwords said: you have 1 clic or 3000 clic a day and no calls, we have to believe and pay them, right?
those guys make me feel that, I am in the wrong business. Now if you stop the campaign, they gonna make sure your web will disappear from any search it doesn't matter what you will do.

I stopped mine and never lost any on my organic placement. I stop and start it. When I am busy I just shut it down, cause I don't have time to really pay attention to it anyways. check your reach zone. how many possible people? that tells you a little bit.
You may get the right help on here. but you may want to hire someone just to set you up one ad or so to get you going. you may be doing something wrong that is simple and your overlooking it.

Now catch this. Yesteray no clicks something like @800 views. Today from 0600-0830 200 views and 2 clicks. How much since does that make. Had 227 views by end of church at 1130 and total of 4 clicks. Statistically speaking it makes no sense

Uhhh, no. I would like to figure this mess out. There should be a balance somewhere, like 100 views to 1 click. 10 clicks to 1 customer. But i'm not seeing any balance or trends. Just a shotgun pattern

Are you tracking what ip addresses are visiting your site? Make sure they are different ones, and if one comes from Adwords 5 times then I am told there is a way to block them

I would contact google to see if they can help. That's messed up. And to throw money away on something that's hacked or what ever.

Remember that "views" might be coming from all kinds of places that google puts up your ad not just in google search. It can also show up in adsense ads all over different pages that have to do with carpet cleaning. Just like different ads that you see placed all over this forum. So you can have a high "view" number and it's just annoying ads on pages that people are avoiding.

And you are now using Adwords instead of Adwords Express correct? I wonder if I can do that on Express. I like having it show up on search and maps but nothing else.
Yes. Can only do that on adwords. Not express. Call google tell them to migrate your ads over to adwords
