Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
We only have one account with them and it is for a site that we don't track as it is designed to genreate phone leads. As such I can't compare it to other accounts. The increase has not been mirrored on other PPC providers for the same site.
Feels very fishy.
The short of it is, they have canned this partner and are making refunds. If you have not heard from them... give them a call, and get your money back!
Has anyone seen non-uk traffic in their logs?
Has anyone experienced this type of problem ie high traffic- few conversions, with other PPC providers?
If you only want uk traffic, why were you bidding on this phrase?
Actually the truth is almost as lame as that excuse. Somebody from Thomson Local (Webfinder) phoned and offered to research and enter hundreds of keywords for us. I did have a quick glance through them when they'd finished but they all looked pretty innocuous.
I used the example of "auto insurance" because it was a glaring fraud, who's to say that there were not hundreds of equally "dodgy" clicks on any number of keywords that I wouldn't have noticed.
WF are owned by Thomson, who are in turn owned by an Italian Media Giant - so don't write them off.....certainly not irrelevant.
