Is it me or has anyone else noticed the MFA sites are all over the space on MSN? I'm a US advertiser....I've been noticing a very dose of these adsense sites in the top fold of some of my better search terms. I'm wondering if MSN is going to do anything about these advertisers.

I see them all the time on google & yahoo as well. The easiest way to get rid of them is to price them out and to a large degree thats how google does it but they still manage to find keywords & ads to try and skim off the top.

True, I see them in Google and Yahoo..but with MSN...I see the MFA sites in the 1st position of many searches at MSN (at least for the things I sell). Seems like they are pricing us out!

I wrote MSN about this. I have to fill out a big letter, send in snapshots, etc....tells me their not on top of this problem.

If you bid for the keywords they're on, it may take 2-3 weeks before you overcome them because the algorithm takes into considering the spend and not just the CPC.

get more advertisers on MSN and MFA spammers buying up cheap keywords won't be a problem.
