Has anybody tried the new Yahoo Ad Manager [admanager.yahoo.com]?

I have spent a little time in it. It seems to just be a way to do content advertising through Yahoo. There is not much there. You can create a Facebook type ad. You can upload a small 82x82 image and then a 50 character title, 150 character text ad, and a 25 character "Sponsored By".

They give you the ability to set a geo target, and show ads more to male or female. After that you can set a daily budget and cpc bid. That is it.

I have no idea where the ads are shown. Does anybody know where the ads are shown?

I got lots of clicks but no sales just like most other content networks.

They don't give you a list of sites your ads show on?

(Ignore me, that was rhetorical yuck-yuck talk)

Be really careful with Yahoo.

They have a long, long history of dishonesty & not giving a hoot about their advertisers.

I am in the same boat as these 2 folks. I associate anything PPC & Yahoo as 100% spam. They lost my trust years ago.

I am guessing this is just another way for them to feed the spam / arbitrage machine that they are still supporting.

Spam and arbitrageurs aren't the worst part...
