GoTo links on AOL are gone!?

There are no more links on AOL from GoTo

Is this just a glitch or is it for the long run? This is really scaring me. I typed a few of my keywords (along with a few really popular ones) into www.aol.com and there are no Sponsored Links anymore. Any insight?

Hmmm...This is a mystery. I really hope this is a glitch... :(

Now the GoTo links are showing again. I'm not worrying right now -- they do have a contract, after all, and it also means $$$ to AOL, I believe.

Hello Herb,

Thank you for your inquiry.

We're experiencing a problem with our data feed to AOL, which is causing intermittent problems with our listings appearing on AOL. Our technical
team is aware of the problem and is working closely with AOL to resolve it. We hope to have this corrected as soon as possible, but unfortunately we can't commit to a specific time when this will be fixed.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of any further assistance. Thank you for choosing GoTo!
