Hi we did get approved for msn ppc a few days ago however we can't find any listings of ours on the search results pages. But they are sending a few clicks a day.

When we follow back the referrer we just see Overture links.

Does anyone know where they are supposed to apear?
Do we have to compete with the Overture ads/bids?

Your ads should appear 1 in 4 searches.

MSN is showing Overture 75% of the time, and MSN 25% of the time.

Doing a refresh doesn't seem to change which ads are being shown; however, hitting the search button again seems to change the ads.

You are not competing with your OV ads at all as far as pricing goes.

We were approved, too, and added some keywords to test it out. We can't see our ads, either. Not even one in four searches, so I am not sure this is going to work unless MSN dumps OT. Is that coming down the pike?
