I run a PPC account on Yahoo and turn this on about 8:30am. I about 30 min (today) I had already received 39 clicks and over 300 visitors. Now my product is not that popular...and when I check my traffic stats, it should 297 visitors from Toseeka.com.

Is this a partner of Yahoo and does anyone know how to turn this off? I only have my ads set to Sponsored match.

They have something to do with Yahoo.

What a VERY annoying front page!

I check my logs again this morning and the same S#$*!

Toseeka.com is clearly a site made for Ads! I contacted Yahoo about this and they said "they would look into it". I turned my ads off, because now I am just wasting money.

So I am going to continue to post and hopefully others will share my grief...

I just spoke with Yahoo about my situation and they are going to "submit" this which can take up to 2 business days ONLY to tell me if they need to "investigate" this further. If they are going to investigate this "further" THEN it could take up to 10 business days. In the meantime, I either keep my account of and loose leads OR turn it on and this Bull#&$ site Toseeka.com will continue to eat my funds, leaving my with no leads. WOW! Yahoo just date raped me and I didn't even get a kiss!

This is one of the reasons I don't advertise with Yahoo anymore.

The two reasons I will not spend money with them. ( I used to spend over $3000 per day on Overture )

1. Bad search partners and no ability to opt out of them
(I can't believe how much money they are probably losing from a seemingly total unwillingness to confront this)

2. No dayparting. Man it's 2007 and they have a whole new system "allegedly" No dayparting, give me a break.

i just noticed an increase in referrals from toseeka to a client, and it's also from the sponsored links at top. So wouldn't turning off content match stop them from showing up there? i mean, what is the point of it otherwise? and yahoo should offer site exclusion like google.

Yeah, like I would exclude everything other than Yahoo.
