Wow 10X increase in daily ad spend
they have been KILLING my credit card

and it has taken 12 hours plus to STOP the ads after I marked them offline

Spending a bit on content each day for 12 months + and then all of a sudden I see all of these charges and content clicks are through the ROOF . . .

most likely what has happened is a YPN affiliate has dramatically increased volume to a page or site with your YSM ads on it

I feel your pain! I was charged $9,500 over 2 days for content match they told me was valid. However, upon investigation, they discovered they owe me a refund! Unfortunately, they took their good old time getting that done. I had to make numerous phone calls (6 to be exact) before everything was said and done. I am NOT impressed with the new system as I believe it is causing problems for others besides us! The best part is they won't admit it. They keep telling me that it is likely my account received a true increase in traffic. Bull! I received more hits in 2 days than I did for the year and a half I have had the account.

I would tell them to investigate the charges if I were you. I would love to hear from others having problems!

There are people here using Yahoo Content? Amazing. We gave up on it long ago and our conversion rate skyrocketed. Until they let me manually block domains, there is NO chance I bother with Yahoo Content match.
