After thinking I was getting zero conversions for quite a long time on AdCenter...

[webmasterworld.com ]

I double checked my page and realized that I did not have the conversion tracking code on my thank you page.

I got that code up very quickly and I am now seeing the conversion data.

I am seeing a HUGE conversion rate and a cost per conversion anout 10 times less than google.

I was absolutly floored when I saw this. If this can keep up, I am dropping google and yahoo like a bad habit and my profit will skyrocket.

The conversion rates have been high for most I have heard from. Only problem is there's just no where near the traffic that Y/O and G have. Glad for your successful but most likely like all of us will be shortlived once more advertisers get in.
The worst experience that I have is that I can't find my ads anywhere although I minimal traffic. I can'f find a single ad showing on MSN.com. Support has NO response and can't tell me how to see my ads. Also the rep here has been unresponsive to posts regarding why people can't see their ads on MSN.com

I don't know how long it will last, but enjoy it while you can.

That's the thing with this MSN Product...It may be super-buggy and difficult to deal with, but the traffic is high quality and cheap (at least for me)

Actually...I don't know if you noticed, but they have a google-style pricing system.

If you are relevant and have a high CTR, I believe you are "locked-in"

For example, I got in on some very competitive keywords and as time has gone on, more and more people have been bidding...Now there are 5 pages of advertisers.

How much am I paying for the #1 spot?

My conversions have been better than Yahoo - worse than Google.

i guess it is hit or miss...one of my ads does 10,000 clicks a month!

and the ads that are low voulme clicks yield $100 commissions/sale...I might get 20 clicks a day...But I will convert on average 3-4x a day...

I'm seeing conversions a little higher than AdWords so far, although the volume of traffic is quite a bit lower.

Really? You must be in some very specific niche market!

I have very competitive keywords and I'm advertising for a week, about 25k impressions and 400 clicks. Can you believe, I have NOT a single conversion?!

I just wonder what do you offer on your site?

Yeah, AdCenter tracking is reporting high conversion rates for me too. Some as high as 800%. Go figure.

Are you suggesting that the conversion tracking isn't working correctly either? Hey MSN put that on your broken list!

I'll take 8 orders for 1 click any day of the week!

And remember, computers don't make mistakes...
