MSN are rampping up the Adcenter trial. If you want to get in, set your alarm clock...

Starting Monday, March 6 at 9 A.M. Pacific Time, we'll be offering an open pilot enrollment for approximately three hours. During this period, you can sign up for an adCenter account directly at [adcenter.msn.com...] and start right away without waiting for an invitation to join.

According to Microsoft the Netherlands does not support credit card payments :-(

I should probably let my bank know, they might want theirs back...

Yeah, I have the same problem.

I was all happy that I could create an account then it says that my country/region doesn't support credit card billing.

I wonder why....

A major let down.

I just signed up today and had a heck of a time with their CSV import tool.

It'd be nice if they would just let you upload a txt file with 1 keyword per line.

When the ads get approved I'll post on a response time. I hope they have a lot of people working today for the open enrollment.

Nice interface.

Looking good - I like the Demographics feature - that could prove very useful... also be able to see massive unexplained blips due to fraud clickers ;) so that I can remove my ad at that time.

Shame I had a small error when trying to set monthly budget... but hey.

Plus how do you edit an ad within a campaign - all I could see was a delete route.... that would be a major bonus...

Easy signup process. Do they have in place yet to see what your competitors are bidding like overture? Would be helpful

what is the turnaround time for ad approval?

Last week they were turning them around in 10 minutes.

Haven't tried any today.

Sent an email inquire on Thursday evening and got four a paragraph personal reply the next morning along with a phone number to call if I needed additional information.

Ad and keyword approvals have been very slow since Friday. I expect it will just get slower.

I was turned away because I am using Mozilla. They said I must use IE6 or better. Don't have a machine laying around here still running IE or windows. Oh well...

nanz - I'm having the same problems as you. I have spent an hour trying to add just one keyword! The system just keeps hanging. I tried uploading from a spreadsheet and from the clipboard - no luck there.

A relief to hear that, Webpublisher.

I send them a mail yesterday giving all the troubles I had, and got an automated response.......... IN FRENCH. Howzzat? Why couldn't they send an English response (automated or otherwise) to an English email.

"Ce message est une réponse automatique qui accuse réception de votre courrier électronique."

Still waiting for answer to my queries and hoping it would be in English.

Adwords support told me it was taking from 36 hours to 5 business days for new ad approval. Anyone know anything about the bid comparison tool, is there or will there be one?

I was told from someone in the "Search Marketing Group" at MSN that there isn't any plans to implement a bid comparison tool.

That was a few months ago when we signed up. Plans could have changed since then, and I believe they will after beta.

Signing up was easy and fast, I am as well waiting for 6 days now for ad approval. Well I can't wait for the account to be fully working.
I added the conversion codes, so let's go!

hi everyone,
it's a known issue on our end that some ads and keywords are running even though the adCenter tool says they're pending. we're working to fix this and i'll let you know here when this is resolved.

nanz - I'm wondering if somehow your user settings are set to France. you can check by going to "my settings" in the top right corner and checking your language. if that's not the problem let me know and i'll try to figure out what's going on there.

thanks,
adCenter411
