How to calculate the average CPC for keywords related to your business?

It is very easy to understand the factors which determine the AdWords cost.

  • CPC: Google charges only when someone clicks on the Ad in Google search result or ads on the Google display network. Google allows you to control your cost per click and Google also has a keyword planner tool to find out about the average cost per click for your niche.
  • The number of clicks: Once you will know your cost per click then you can set up the daily budget based on the number of clicks you would like to acquire on a daily basis.

How to calculate daily / monthly Google Ads Cost in Australia?

Once you know your average CPC (Cost per click) and then the number of clicks you would like to acquire per day then it is very easy to calculate your daily budget.

For example: let's say the average CPC is: $5 and you would like to get 20 clicks per day then your daily cost will be: $5 x 20 = $100.

Once you will know your daily budget then you can easily calculate your monthly AdWords spend. Just multiply your daily spend by 30.4 and you will get the monthly AdWords budget. Google considers 30.4 days in a month.

So, in this situation, your monthly budget will be $100 x 30.4 = $3,040.

Note: Google may use more than the allocated daily budget in some situations but it doesn't exceed the monthly spend. Meaning if Google may see more opportunities on a particular day then your ad will be shown more often which will return as a higher than allocated daily spend and when there will be fewer searches done then it may not use the full daily allocated budget, meaning the system tries to create a balance.
