Content Network Dead

Is there anything I am missing here?

I am running three adgroups in the content network. My bid seems to be high enough to generate lots of impressions. I know this because I have used the "Update All Bids For Best Position" button and the result shows lots of impressions below my default bid price. The bizarre thing is that over three weeks, I have received zero impressions.

My account manager, after several calls, has not been able to figure out the problem. Does anyone have any ideas of what the problem could be?

Kidding me right? those traffic estimates are a total joke. Broken and not accurate in any way. Just like the little green Active label. Says active, but certainly NOT active!

Remember the movie Office Space?

"Thumbs up their asses!"

See they are advertising software engineers and coders online. Maybe they should have thought about recruiting talent BEFORE they tried the "transition".

Oh, and make sure your site provides visitors with "a quality search experience".

Maybe Adcenter and Yahoo should think about showing their advertisers a quality ADVERTISING experience.

Then there is the Bing search results. All the advertising above the fold like Ask.com, and the blank space wasted, empty spaces, empty ad space going to waste. Then there is the green check stars below each Ad. Looks like a dog's breakfast. Are these people the Kings of bad taste or what?

You know what gives me the most pleasure? When I can spam the hell out of their algo with junk sites and NOT use their PPC program.


Oh - almost forgot to answer your question, "What the problem might be"

Yeah, that is an easy answer. Their system is junk and they're retards.
