You will still get clicks even if you don't appear on the first page. The tool is correct -- you will still get some clicks if you bid low.

As a result you will get fewer clicks than predicted at that price.

So for 1, you would setup the landing page as the goal, not the link. For 2, that's precisely what the adwords conversion does. Go to Tools - Conversions - +conversion. More info: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722054?hl=en (The link you posted summarizes it pretty good.)

While Google Adwords do officially allow their ad links to be redirected - an HTTP 200 response code will work much better. It may be worth noting that the display URL does not need to match exactly the advert destination URL. Perhaps you have ommitted the www. out of your destination URL? Your site currently redirects with an HTTP 301 code to the www ...

If you're sending visitors to a different site / booking engine and you have not implemented cross-domain tracking, then yes the visit will break and the rest of the pages won't be attributed to your AdWords traffic.

The good news for you is that it is usually far cheaper for you to bid on your own trademarks than it is for competition to do so. In my experience, you can usually bid on your own trademarks and get the top position for 1 cent or 2 cents. This is because: The click through rate will be higher for you because you are the official site The content on ...

Here is an article that addresses that question: ...you can double your traffic by being at the top of paid and organic results. That figure of doubling comes from Google's reps, so take it with a grain of salt. However, in my experience, it helps you to bid on the terms and pay for traffic even if you are #1 in organic. I've never seen it be twice ...

Google as far as I know does not have a inbuilt flash maker that will convert a series of images and sound to a Flash Compatible file, so with this said you will need to make your own. When you upload a image to Adwords you can see it says 'Acceptable Formats: PNG, JPEG, SWF and so on.. the important file format to take notice off here is .swf - this is a ...

Generally the step 1 you refer to generates a lot of keywords that are marginally relevant or keywords that have no chance of converting, these keywords will still likely drive clicks so step 2 helps you save some (or a lot) of money when you begin your campaigns.
