"Fortunatly, I have not seen a lot of the problems people are reporting and I have to think that is because I did not migrate the Yahoo account over."
That's because MSN purposely shut out thousands of Yahoo advertisers and favored their original Adcenter accounts. Why do I know this? Because my sister went through the same thing I did and lost all her traffic.
During her frustration with the "transition", she became very friendly with Yahoo! service rep. The service rep still remained in contact with after she resigned with the new Adcenter, she divulged the following - quote;
"It was clear after the engineers flipped the switch that the original Adcenter customers were going to be given preferential treatment...my customers were denied every time, while sites that were approved were all original Adcenter customers".
And after all the research we did to find out why complete MFA sites are being allowed in the system, and why we were denied for having ONE LOUSY aff link, and NO ADSENSE, and no advertising of any kind, made it VERY clear that this statement from their ex-employee is indeed what went down.
The good news is I have focused for 4 months creating bags of good content, and we almost back to our original profit without spending a dime on PPC with ANY network.
Hey MSN! Thanks for the free traffic, and PS......you are STILL easy to spam. Bite me.
