Yahoo should stop having minimum spending limits. It is so frustrating. I am pausing my campaign cause I cant hit the minimum spend yet. I dont want to bid higher. I dont want the content network. The only thing I can do is try and add new words.
Are you able to hit the minimum spend limit every month? Any other suggestions to help me out?

Yahoo stopped requiring the $20 per month minimum some time ago.

Not for European accounts.

Ya I'm running campaigns for the UK.

Stopped using Yahoo for US. Their geo targeting seems to be very off. Get lots of clicks from India and Africa. People typing in 'yahoo.com' see yahoo US ads. I dont want to waste money like that.

Yes, the European minimum is silly. We created an account for every region, but all except two met the minimum spend. So we shut the rest off rather than pay the minimum.

Whose fault is it that they don't have enough traffic in these regions?

Thats why I am thinking of adding more keywords, so I can increase overall clicks but I dont know if its worth the effort.
Wouldnt it make sense for yahoo to scrap this minimum spend? They would get more advertisers who will want to advertise for the non US regions.
