Started buying Adword keywords a week ago, mostly for the purpose of replacing what I lost as a result of Overture's losing its AOL contract. Was able to get thru to someone in tech support at Google last Thursday and she was able to get my ad for the phrase "auto tool" up on AOL. But the moment I made a change to it it didn't appear anymore. Tried calling Google's tech support again, but haven't received a return call. I think they are having major problems with their keyword buying program in relation to AOL. One thing is certain: AOL has lost the better part of the keyword revenue it was getting from Overture and won't get it back for some time. A major loss for a company already bleeding a lot of red ink.
