Yahoo is SO difficult to use
anyone help me with some basics

With Google you just click the conversion tracking link, copy your code and paste in on your conversion page.

I don't have a clue how to do this with Y, can someone please give me some simple instructions. I'd be eternally grateful.

Is there some kind of a handbook out there for people who are experienced with Google and want to be able to work out the mysteries of Yahoo?

You should be able to just login, click on Admin tab, then Analytics link between Master Account Users and Tracking URLs.

This is the Analytics Settings page and you'll see Conversion Only Analytics under Analytics optoins, select this radio button.

This gives you access to the javascript code and instructions for how to place on your thank you/confirmation page.

Make sure to click Activate button.

Here's their help section about it

I also have a problem with Geo Locating.

I want to target US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.

When I go to the settings option for the campaign, whatever I do, I can only select US and Canada. Anyone know what to do? Again it would seem to be a very simple thing in principle.

I have a UK campaign and can only target UK. My understanding is that with Yahoo you have to set up a separate account with/for each country/domain you want to advertise in. This is obviously a lot more time consuming than the Google way of doing it!
