No Impressions. Ads stopped being displayed!

I have been running some campaings for 2 months. When I started optimizing bids my ads stopped being shown on msn and live. I have no impressions at all.

Rep says my site is not banned, but I need to change ads and increase bids which are not copetetive.

My bids ARE competetive, I change my ads I still have no impressions or just a few while before I had thousands and CTR apx 2%.

Did msn rep lie and why?
Can it be the problem with my landing pages?

Thanks for any help.

They did the same to some of my accounts. I just pulled all my own and my clients' accounts out of adCenter and shifted the budgets back to Google - nine accounts in all - I don't have time for this, and the returns haven't been worth it.

Stick with Google for your online advertising. It's not worth the hassle and MSN sucks anyway for search. regards, osagie irowa

I've been getting way more traffic from my UK targetted ad groups than those targetted at the US for weeks now? How can that be?

Your life will suddenly improve when you forget about MSN - I had a great 2007!

The thing is that the account was doing prety well. 2000 usd spendings per day, but one day it was blocked it seems - no impressions.

I have an account on google but I need the traffic from MSN as well and to open new account is a nightmare. I have been trying to open the new account since more than 1 month and nothing up to this time - problems with everything! It is like in the Kafka' s the Trial

Something is very wrong with adcenter. Yesterday all my campaigns (maybe 40 separate ad groups) stopped getting impressions. Just like that. Meanwhile everything still said Active; but nothing actually was.

I figured they banned my account for some reason or there was a technical problem so I called a rep; they just told me it maybe a quality score thing; so I just need to get rid of low ctr keywords and submit slightly changed ads. I did so and still no impressions! Even though supposedly the ads are 'active''

I think ok, let try creating another account (same user) this morning and try a couple of adgroups. I get impressions for about 30 minutes and then it all stops! Even with a ctr of over 1% ! Yet everything is still marked 'Active'.

Seriously, #*$! is going on here? I guess MSN decided they didn't want my 4 figures a month in business, but they don't even have the decency to admit they have stopped my entire account for some reason? Nice.

^^^^^^^^^^^^Exact same thing. I like the traffic but it pales in comparison, volume-wise, to even YSM.

The rep said the same thing, modify ads so they are looked at again and add all three keyword types - I just have broad. I don't have time for it right now.

I hope they don't buy Yahoo, lol.

New campaigns seem to be running finally. LOL and here I thought Adcenter was out of beta.
