Just wondering, is anyone running adcenter in the UK yet?

I'm signed up for the beta and have my "order" placed, but everything has just been sitting pending for a long time (reminds me of Overture!).

I've heard elsewhere that the beta hasn't actually started yet, but opinion seems to be divided.

The first 5 results are usually adCenter, the rest are YSM.

Then again, they do seem to be turning it on and off at random. Still, it's only a beta.

We eventually got invited into the beta after filling out any form we could - SES London and Adcenter site is what I can remember.

Rumours of a launch sometime in August but not holding breath.

Hi all.

Minimum bid when using USD as account currency is 5 cents.

So, is minimum bid when using British Pounds as account currency 5 pence?

Thanks.

Where can I register to MSN adcenter UK?
I went to [adcenter.msn.uk...] and was redirected to [adcenter.microsoft.com...]

I already have a US adcenter account, so should I open a new one for the UK or does the US account cover the UK too?

update:
after I clicked on SignUp I got this page
[adcenter.microsoft.com...]
saying:

"Thank you for your interest in Microsoft adCenter.
Microsoft adCenter is not available in your market at this time.
Please check back later. "

Beta is live and running but I've not heard when the public release will be.

Its a shame traffic is so poor though, because it's quite a good system. Still, it's so cheap it might as well be free at the moment; so I'm hardly complaining.

SClaw, any idea how to get on the beta? Is it agencies only or will the promise of a slice of a not-insubstantial (but not agency size) Adwords spend suffice?

Any advice much appreciated.

Hi everyone,
As lloyd mentions above, adCenter U.K. is launching on 15 August. At that point, just go to adcenter.microsoft.com to sign up.

Thanks,

AdCenter411,
Is there a seperate account for the UK market or will my current adcenter account will work in the UK as well?

webdudek,
You can use your U.S. account to reach the U.K. audience by creating Campaigns/Orders and targeting them under Order Settings to "English United Kingdom."

Thanks,

Adcenter411

All well and good, except this option is not available in my drop down (US account)....

I only have English - Singapore(!), English - United States and French - France....

Regards
Simon

I have the same problem as Simon_says, I only see Singapore, U.S. and France in my account.

According to the last post on the AdCenter blog it should already be possible to create UK campaigns but I don't have the "English - United Kingdom" option (yet).

Hi everyone,
The official launch is happening tomorrow, so check again then, and let me know if you see any issues.

Thanks!

Any news?

I'm seriously considering giving MSN a go, as I'm a newby at G Adwords and struggling, not least as it's all so darn foggy and mysterious.

If MSN is a bit more transparant about just WHAT is required, so I can make business decisions instead of casting vodoo spells and crossing my fingers, they'll get my business.

Been lurking for awhile having not posted on this site for about a year but while I'm here, let me get something off my chest:

I DON'T CARE HOW MUCH YOU SPEND!

Now me, I'm a newby at PPC and still struggling with the net thing in general. My own site only sells one product, $30 and no I'm not rich. I cheerfully admit I'm struggling to get a single sale with this one item, which is why I'm here, for tips and stuff.

But lemme tell ya something that even I know.

If my site sold various items at different prices, then to me a customer buying a $1 item is a customer, period. They are no more or less piss-portant than a customer buying a $500 or more item.

So before complaining about costs or ROI, consider that perhaps your business would do better if it didn't have the attitude that some here seem to have, ie that high-spending clients are "more important" than the little spender.

A lot of little spenders is a lot of money. Do I need to spell that out?

Finally this isn't aimed at anyone in particular, or even this thread specifically, for as I say it's been awhile since I posted. I just needed to get that off my chest. :o)

If those with the 'big spender' attitude towards the PPC companies have the same attitude towards their own custoemrs I can see why you need to spend a lot on advertising!

I don't seem to be able to edit my existing US orders to add msn.co.uk targeting to them, the "Select a display language and region for your ads" drop down box is greyed out and shows "English - United States" only. If I try to create a new order then I do get the UK option but with thousands of orders I don't relish the thought of duplicating them all one at a time (now that my QuickLaunch window has closed). Is there a way round this I'm missing? Thanks.
