I just wanted to know if anyone else had a problem as mine:
When I checked up my a/c balance it had enough funds for 2+ days.Now when I refreshed the page after sometime, there came my shock!The funds vanished and the a/c went offline...
I doubt its a case of fraud or some back-end problem at Overture..
What say u?
If you have a high quality log analysis software package you should be able to determine if the clicks were fraudulent or not, just by seeing if they stay on the page. The more info you can gather the better when you make a claim that you had fraudulent clicks...If they come back and say that they did not determine that you did get fraudulent clicks and you can prove that you did, you can get a refund/credit.
Overture is allowing content syndication of ads in pretty much any way their partners want them to use it, which has caused a lot of account problems for people.
Also, I have been using content match option from the day 1.All these days I have had no problems with my CTR.
Have reported the same to OV.I guess I need to get a fraud check done.
After this weekend, you will be able to bid on keywords seperately for "content match", and not affect your bids for normal distribution channels (MSN/Yahoo/etc)..
But until then, I would strongly advise to turn it off.
