Serious inconvenience #2
I was told that if I exceed $6,000 in yearly spending that I would qualify for a gold account with a gold support team at my disposal -- which would approve keywords quicker (uh-huh)...
Well here I am ... in LESS than two months I've spent MORE than $6,000 and they're not giving me a gold account. What do they say? WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR!
Tier II- YSM (falling), MSN (rising)
Tier III- Miva, Ask and the rest of the rip-offs
Do not commit a significant % of your PPC budget to YSM. MSN Adcenter full launch in June will rock YSM, new interface or not.
Even a level 2 now might be generous.
I just got off the phone with them about a recent click fraud investigation and for the first time in 3 years they are not acknowledging ANY suspicious clicks per my investigation request. I ask maybe once every 3 months to have clicks reviewed and everytime they have found proof of my allegations, now they are so far in the whole and losing advertisers' that I contend they are just not going to be acknowledging click fraud from now on.
They just don't get it - they are a desperate company.
Uh, Buh-Bye Yahoo.
We'll see a hail mary re-launch of YSM to counter the full launch of MSN AdCenter but the only way for YSM to change the tide is to admit there mistakes and become more transparent. The problem is YSM is too embarassed to publish their ad distribution network.
C'mon Y- who are your partner sites?
