    Never buy google ad space. Today I decided to see how their system was and if it actually helped. Well I set a limit of 20$ worth the impressions just so it didn't go real high. Well the limit didn't work and right now my account is at almost 300$ and it keeps going up even after I disbaled the ads and everything. So needless to say their system is quite fucked up. I have been sitting here for hours printing out pages as they update and every single one says my limit is 20$ and my amount spent is 20$ but yet another section says I sepnt almost 300$. I'm going to take it to court if the need be. But I pretty much have a win case here. The limit is suppose to stop at what you set. Well I'm just warning people so you don't fall into their trap.

    Oh and also here's some very shady statistics.

    As of right now I have gotten;

    19244 impressions and guess how many clicks?

    16 yes only 16.

    Go to My Home / My Settings then scroll downand you will see avatar and on the left side under the text Avatar you will see a link to upload a custom avatar.


    Google has no minimum . Hence the reason I set it at 20$ just to see how it was.

    Well still go ahead and use it. They didn't make me pay. It ran up to 300$ and they only made me pay the 20$.

    They have a new adwords select with a new options.

    - Cost-per-click (CPC) pricing so you pay only when someone clicks your ad.


    But I'll bet it's expensive already, for the right words, haven't looked yet but received email the other day.

    Yes but that program has like a 50$ setup fee. So I tried the regular one first.
