Requesting more than 250 blocked domains
Anyone with me?

 2:29 pm on Oct 30, 2007 (gmt 0)

Reading recent posts, I see that I am not the only one playing the block-a-domain-watch-a-new-one-appear-in-less-than-24-hours game. I used all 250 within two days and now and back to where I started.

I am requesting an increase in the number of allowed blocked domains to either a very large number, such as 10,000, or unlimited blocked domains. Anyone with me?

Already hit 250+ on just one AdGroup, and this garbage accounts for almost 50% of the traffic. Plus a lot of the domains have an "uninstall" link I'm pretty sure that a lot of it is probably "toolbar" popups.

Looks like they are automatically send "content network" traffic, even though that is turned off. Once I finish slugging through this mess, I'll be asking for a rebate.

Yeah, YSM is out of control. Worse than ever. We might just give up on YSM altogether.

I managed to trace some of these "new" domains back to some domain parking places.

It sorta looks like when people blocked SomeDomainParking.com who was originally redirecting to their home ads page. They then turned around and placed the ads on the parked domains instead.

When I checked one small(unknown to me) parking company, they have over +90k domains parked. That's definetly way more than 250 that we can block.

Absolutely, we need way, way more than 250. 10,000 would be nice.

These are the reasons Yahoo! is getting slaughtered in the search game.

New interface, same old customer service (or lack thereof)....

I found a nice workaround for now. It's not the ideal solution but it does the trick for now. Simply create more accounts and move your campaigns into these new account. Each account will give you a fresh 250 domains that can be blocked.
