Google AdWords Bid Simulator Live For More Advertisers

Seems like in the past 24 hours, more Google AdWords advertisers are seeing the bid simulator tool that Google has been testing for a few months now.

I am personally seeing it in my account, but not in some of my client accounts. Here is how they are handling it now, in the new interface.

You click on the bid price or the little icon near it:

Google AdWords Bid Simulator

And it opens up a window with more bid options, a simulation of how the bids might impact cost, clicks and so on. This picture is taken from E-Commerce Circle:

It seems like this is now being rolled out to more and more advertisers. Google confirmed this is a feature they are testing, but have not confirmed when all advertisers will see it. For more details on bid estimator, see this help document.

Forum discussion continued at Search Engine Watch Forums.

Update: Google confirmed it is live for all. Here is a video demo of it:

I do see the bid simulator which is enabled in my Adwords new interface. It seems that, bid simulator will not work under the position preference setting enabled.

I can see that too in one of my clients account. And yes, it will not work under position preference as Position preference works completely different from bid stimulator! I like it though!!

Some of my client accounts have become active with this feature also. We've been following this story at the AdWords Adviser. You can read it here! http://www.adwords-adviser.co.uk/google-adwords-bid-simulator/
