Google Adwords

Ok, I've used adwords before, in a different industry, with great success. I am struggling to get clicks for some reason in landscaping. I have over 500 keywords, im paying top dollar for clicks in these keywords... I think I'm struggling with my ads themselves... If your getting clicks, what do your ads say? I've experimented with different ads, and still am not getting the results I want.

I have a campaign going myself through a "adword" guru company ( )
Im going through the same stuff. Not many clicks, fewer click throughs and next to no calls.

I had also done my own campaign with even less results.

Company Im going through say to have something like a $10/day spend. This keeps your add higher up the list, for longer. Or something like that anyway.

Basically, I'd love to know the answer myself!

A possible cause to some degree maybe the anti ad, add ons in browsers. When I used Firefox I never saw a google ad. Not everyone uses that type of thing though!

I'm just finishing up reading adwords for dummies. Although it isn't specifically for a local or even a service business. There is more than enough information in it to justify the cost. You should really read it.
