I have a free £75 coupon for Google AdWords but it says they require me to pay £25 to use the coupon so i am questioning if i should run a campaign or not since i run a forum earning with Adsense rather than a shop or business.
If i set the daily budget to £5 for my keywords they say i get around:
197+ Daily clicks 11K+ Daily impressions
Now if i calculate:
My payment £25 would give me 5 days worth of ads then:
985+ Daily clicks 55K+ Daily impressions
Then the £75 would give me 15 days worth of ads then:
2,955+ Clicks 165K+ Impressions
The totals would be:
3,940+ Clicks 220K+ Impressions
My forum is very new, Adsense has been on there for a week and earnings are:
721 Page Views 1.4K Impressions Page RPM: £0.18 Last 7 Days: £0.13
So it seems they estimate i would earn £0.18 Per 1000 Page Views which would give me these earnings:
3,940+ Total Clicks = £7.092 Earnings (£17.908 Loss)
Considering this is suppose to be £100 advert campaign which looks like it would give me a loss of £17.908 that doesn't seem too great.
Would there be any benefit or reason i should run this advert campaign?
For example might it rise my page ranks in google after the ads finish, get me new users and backlinks etc and possibly lead to me generating more Adsense earnings in the future? This seems possible but a bit of a gamble for £17.908 right now.
Are my calculations correct and does anyone have any advice regarding this?
