    Your AdWords Account Has Been Slowed


    How do you fight "slowing" and "disabling" of your AdWords account while experimenting with keywords, CPC and daily budget?

    I was experimenting with keywords and I got "Your AdWords Account Has Been Slowed" message from Google. If the account is slowed 2 more times it will be disabled and than I need to pay $5 each time to enable it. I changed my keywords to more specific ones, raised CPC and daily budget. I would like to know how may times other people had their account slowed or disabled until they found the right combination of keywords, CPC, and daily budget?

    Thank you.

    I have never had an AdWords campaign slowed.

    Maybe you need to amend the ad copy to get a higher CTR?

    ... another factor is the content of your ad. Try some different wording... different approach... adding a little sex appeal can make all of the difference.

    But, sadly some offers just don't get much attention and in those situations we need to move forward with other ideas.

    I'm guessing that you are using a broad matched term (or terms) for your campaign. If so, you should add as many negative keywords as possible to limit impressions for non-targeted searches.

    I tried with "non-broad" terms first, but I used many kewords (around 10 combinations). Should I concetrade on just 1 or 2 kewords?

    You should do what makes the most sense to find targeted traffic. You might find this thread on bounded terms interesting.
