PPC is definately not for newbies, In my opinion, Unless you have had some good training by someone who knows PPC well.
Yes, Google will do this, and it is often called the google dance,
When you raise your bids... then your competition raise there bids... and then Google lets you know you need to raise your bids again and so on.
There are whole courses on PPC and this can not be explained in 1 post.
My opinion on a starting daily bid for PPC is that if you start with $10, google will not take you very seriously.
Although you may want to work up from that.
What you are experiencing is what all new adwords people experience.. welcome to the wonderful world of Google..lol
I am not trying to scare you.. but you just need to put in higher bids PER click at first... then after a day or two, lower them until you have found the spot you want in the Search pages... but keep in mind.. the competition is tuff and they watch what you are doing. It is all about finding your niche, being highly relevent and tweaking your campaigns.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
