AdWords Didn’t Work Out

A while ago, I mentioned that I got a free credit of $100 to use with Google AdWords. After a couple days, I wrote that it didn’t seem like anyone clicked on any of my ads. Well, it’s been over a month and as far as I can tell, none of my ads have been clicked on or my ad hasn’t gone up yet. It’s an ad for Mach Dice and I’ve tried just about every relevant keyword I could think of, including all the suggested ones (iphone, dice, rpg, boardgame, etc.). I even tried bumping up my budget to $20 a day with a max bid of $10 per click (which seems insanely expensive considering that my maximum profit would be 70 cents).

So, either I’m not doing this right or Google AdWords isn’t the right venue for advertising my iPhone apps. Well, at least it didn’t cost me much to find that out. But hey, if any of you have suggestions for making it work, let me know!

    Adwords is really good for promoting a product that you want to sell online. It is very important that you geoatarget your intended audience so as to avoid wasting your advertising funds.

    I think the problem in my case is that I’m trying to advertise iPhone apps and Google Adwords won’t let you use the word “iPhone” in your advertisement. That sort of kills the usefulness of it for me.
