Just got the notification email... Currently, paid traffic is at 40% of total volume. MSN will be raising it to 70% around the 22nd.

Just in time with Yahoo tanking their traffic quailty as of recent.

ScottG13,

Do they have anything official that confirms this for those of us sans-account reps?

Oh. That's a worrying sign. Anyone else?

(I'll go away and look at my own stats now)

I've had a few more clicks, but I believe this bump in traffic will happen over the course of several days. I'm seeing an trend that would indicate an increase, but not as much as expected. Let's hope there is more to come.

MSN's conversion seems to be stronger this month, as well. Watch at Yahoo's drops.

We need real-time (or closer to it) reporting with this traffic increase. It's impossible to monitor your budget without decent figure.

Amen. Reports don't do any good 24-48 hours later. They need to be within a couple hours max.

Also, you should be able to pause orders in real time.

I have started new orders for unproven affiliate offers...Well, I see the clicks in real time with azoogleads and I see little or no conversion...Then if I turn off the order, the clicks will still come through for the next 2-3 hours...

There were a couple orders that generated a couple thousand unwanted clicks because they came after the fact I turned the order off!

hi all,
Are other people seeing the traffic increase?
Hard to determine here because am always adding orders & keywords, so measuring it's like trying to weigh a running cat. (sorry for lame metaphor).

Yes we're seeing the increase, although with the 2 different open registrations, competition has gone up so the impact hasn't been as much as hoped.

I'm currently seeing roughly double the traffic from January. Very pleased.
