    You need to be more specific. Post your ad here, give the sample of your keywords, etc. It's hard to tell why. Sometimes the reason you have too many impressions and a few clicks is because the bid is not high enough. Your ad ends up being at the bottom of sponsored ads and not a whole lot of people like to look there.

    By the way try AdCenter as well, it can be that their results will differ from AdWords'.

    Niche? Buddy! I can pretty much guarantee that there are not many "Niches" left out there. So the "Niche" you are trying to protect can be copied when people see the ad on google, lol. You need to make your product super strong backed up with quality service. Still I agree with you posting your ad here is not a great idea. You can hire someone really cheap on Odesk or Elance to prepare your ad for you. You might want to try that.

    Totally agree. I think every niche is pretty much used these days.

    From my experiences it all depends on the locations of the ads in regards to the text and information on the website.

    Are you targeting the keywords that someone who is looking to make a purchase would type into google search?
