MSN Pay Per Click Is Horrible

I decided to try out MSN Pay-Per-Click a few days ago and it was an awful experience. I have removed my account and will not try for many moons (must get MUCH better). Problem is their automated system takes a day or so to even start showing the ads, THEN they reject your keywords and stop ads. Why? I called them and even they don't know. They said well your keywords are fine, and your site is certainly fine, so they didn't see a problem. Asked them how to fix, and they said to re-submit it and try a few different ways. Needless to say, I told them to cancel my account as I do not have time to piss around trying to baby your dumb computer.

I told them that its no wonder Google beats them. Pathetic. I would not suggest anyone use them at this point. They need to get their heads out of dark places and try again. :)-

That bad huh? Its terrible that they didn't help you with that, I bet that when someone higher up hears of this they will solve it for you.

Certainly in the beginning it will further them to be very helpfull with advertisers.

We set up an account for a trial, and out of about 200 keywords only had one rejected, and that was because it was a typo.

Not going to put a lot of $$ into it for a bit, right now just hitting on two main categories to see what problems develop and what our return is on hits and conversions. Only been going for a week so a bit early to tell much yet.

I'm sorry you've had a bad experience. I've managed to use MSN PPC to maintain a 300% ROI over the last 5 months. I only wish I could invest more money in MSN PPC.

The top bids are similar to Adwords but because there aren't as many bidders, so I've found it's much easier to stay in the top 3.

The downsides are certainly there, too:
- their online interface is unstable
- I can't get their conversion tracking to work
- they automatically reject some ads and keywords, which requires an appeal and manual review to finally get included

But overall, if for nothing but the money, I'm happy with MSN PPC.
