My ads were approved, however, when I test it and do a search on MSN for my keywords, the ads do not appear. Did I forget to activate them or something?

hi skunker,
if your ads are approved, they should be running and you should be able to see them. i suggest you contact adCenter support [support.adcenter.msn.com] and they can help you figure out what's going on.

thanks,

hi adcenter,
Thanks for your reply. I did send an email to MSN this morning and they got back to me and said that they also do not see my ads, even though I had a high CPC bid and approved ads. So, I am waiting to hear back from them....at least they are looking into it. Thanks.

It happens to me too from time to time. Ads approved but not appear all the time. Anyone else has same experience?

I haven't seen a single ad on msn.com for weeks now but still showing clicks in admin. Called support and couldn't get a straight answer. Tried from several different pc's with diff ip still no ads. Seems pretty simple to me, if I can't see the ad how can potential customers? Any insight adcenter?

I'm getting this too. It shows that I have impressions, clicks and being charged. But when I check the search results myself I cannot see my advert despite clicking the search button multiple times.

Good, I thought I was alone. Thanks for your feedback guys. I am still not seeing ads...hopefully they will nail down the problems soon.

The answer is that this program is awful right now!
I too never know when my ads will be displayed.

at least you guys finally made it to the point of getting approved ads and kw.

maybe i should set my expectations that once the basic account setup hurdles are completed (grumble grumble grumble.. they're STILL working on issues posted elsewhere in this forum), i'll still be disappointed with how the ads are(ie are-not) served?

Yes arnarn - getting ads approved is just hurdle #1. Landmines everywhere with this release by MSN; I don't expect it to get any better anytime soon either.

My impressions have also dropped to near zero for 2 days. When I do an MSN search on one of my popular search terms, 5 ads are displayed, none of them mine.

4 of the 5 have nothing whatever to do with the search term. 3 of them were garbage like this from eBay:

So much for relevance!
