Advanced Match Type : OFF
Content Match™ : OFF
Turned them off more than a week ago. Yet, I'm still showing up on their partner sites and my budget has doubled in the last two weeks. I just sent them an email today and I'm completely peeved. They better be coming up with some compensation since this is there fault.
I want nothing to do with there so called 'partner' cheating, low ROI spam sites...so I'm pissed to find out that OFF does not mean OFF.
Same for Avanced Match. It's turned off but still not really off.
Anyone else having problems with them?
I also noticed that I'm competing with these fly by night search engines carrying Adsense ads. I mean what is that? I reported them and they are looking into it but who knows. As I told them...I'm competing with adsense ad sites that have my Adwords ad on the page anyway. It doesn't make any sense for them to allow that because if they don't do anything about it ..I'll just stop those keywords altogether since I'll be showing up on these sites with my google adwords anyway.
On another note, AOL was competing on a large number of keywords in my field aiming at a page that didn't have what they said it had. Matter of fact AOL has no business in this area altogether. I guess they don't monitor them like they do the smaller clients by actually visiting the page.
To their credit however, they did kick them completely out of my area after about 4 complaint emails.
I'm sick of the game of having to monitor my PPC's every couple of hours to make sure my competition is not driving my budget into the ground by cozying up to me from behind.
Yahoo, wake up before you lose all your clients. I left Kanoodle, FindWhat and Enhance and I will leave you too. Your ROI is going down all the time and you are just making it easier to say goodbye or to at least seriously cut our budget with you by 3/4
