Im trying to reorganise the 'mess' created when I upgraded. I decided to delete a campaign containing one keyword that is like gold dust to my campaign and create a new adgroup within a newly formed campaign with the same ad & keyword and now it's declined? This is going to cost me dearly if I cannot get it reactivated. Why would they decline a keyword I have used for months and months? Also, I have keywords that convert with Google and MSN (mainly url's) and I can never get approval with YSM. There really not helping themselves here. Aside from some improvements it seems like the same old system with a new face to me.

IMHO the system was rushed out to keep their stock from falling through the floor. I haven't upgraded yet, but I haven't read many posts that make me look forward to the carnage that I"m sure awaits me.

I love the new system.

Quick response, quick approvals and fairly logical screen layout.

95% of my keywords are approved instantly.

However, some odd disapproved keywords like:

'Widget Software Design'

That was declined and that is what my business is and 300+ pages about only widgt softwre design - crazy.

My solution for their horrid implementation was to wipe out the whole thing and convert all of my Google campaigns.

I do not like their bidding system at all. Giving us only 2 postions to aim for is not good. Overall I really do not like the new system.

I just conducted the nightmare conversion. Did they out-source this to the Programming 101 class at the local middle school? Unbelievable. I have to start from scratch. It'll cost them a grand a day until I can get my ads back up. /end> gripe.

I imported mine from google after they were all screwed up. It actually works pretty well. That is the best feature I've seen from them in a while.

I haven't been upgraded to Panama yet. Is it safe to say the best thing that can happen is to be delayed for the upgrade?

I'm trying to figure out how they screwed up the upgrade so bad. Nothing worked, it's as if they wanted to wreck your account so you have to import your adwords account.
