Any ideas if we can trust the partial numbers we are seeing there now?

Called Yahoo - no eta.

They said we could use email to submit changes and they would make them. Does that mean I can use email to have them make changes on other accounts I don't manage?

Really... get real here... "submit changes by email"?

This is not pretty!

Going on 3rd day!

No way to "roll back" to a working version?

I wonder if Yahoo really realizes how damaging this is going to be?

"Panama" -- who cares!

People starting to opt out of Yahoo PPC......

Stock plumeting.........

This is getting ridiculous! I am still unable to update my keywords. I may just focus on Adwords for a while. I have very little patience for this type of thing.

It's just ridiculous that Yahoo can't even sort these sort of programming issues out in a timely manner. I mean it's ok for there to be the occasional error, but come on, more than 24hrs for such a major problem? You'd think they'd have a team of braniacs working on it and have it sorted in a few hours tops.

And we all spend our money with Yahoo, why again?

I suppose it's too much to expect not to be charged for clicks during the downtime.

HAHAHA!

In the time it's been down they have lost 2 Billion (6.5%) in Market Cap, they could have bought YouTube for that!

Meanwhile Google has gained a percentage point in value.

Could Yahoo be a takeover target soon? More to the point, who would want them?

Yeah, a whole day now of "Please try again in 20 minutes" trying to bulk-upload new listings. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

But their system is still working well enough to email and remind me to replenish my balance. I think I might save my money for MSN instead.

Wow! abandon Yahoo PPC for MSN PPC?

Desperate times call for desperate measures, so "Yahoo guys" I think things may be getting desperate!

Don't you know Google people are laughing their $$#@ off...

The REALLY bad news here is that the more Yahoo & MSN screw up, the less competition Google has and the more the blasted click prices rise!

If you've been with GoTo, Over, Yahoo for any length of time you will know they have a history of programming screw-ups.

This does not bode well for the new interface.

These types of programming errors are so common with them (bad math, incorrect term identification, the ol' "new term" issue, etc.etc.) that they probably go straight from the programmers' workstations to live ... heck ... why bother testing something before you put it into production?

And, as others have noted here, whatever happened to the idea of rolling back a buggy program to the previously functioning version while they work out the problem?

Yahoo has the crappiest big-time programming on the web. Bar none.

Hi All,

We've been experiencing some technical difficulties that were impacting the editorial tools in our search advertising UI but are happy to report that these systems are back up and running. Thanks for your patience.

No mention about how all of our accounts got budgeting turned on and no Current Day (or Seven Day) stats? Well, at least editorial is getting worked out. We can work on the money stuff, later, I guess.

OvertureRep,

Not to be rude but the site/functionality was down for what? almost 3 days and that is all you can say?

I would of hoped for some sort of PR type response with some high level detail/comment on what happened as well as an apology.

If our site(s) were to go down our customers would want to know a bit more as well. Only fair you give us a bit more to tell them.

Having said that: I do want to thank you for letting us know it was up.
