Somebody can explain, what is "Watch List" in YSM, what functions it carries out and for what in general it is necessary? If you enable option "Watch List" (Campaign>General settings) you will see a little tag opposite to campaign in section "Summary"!

The Watch List is a way to keep track of the campaigns, ad groups or keywords that you want to check back on. So if you mark something on the watch list, you'll get a dashboard of the campaign, ad group, or keyword you are watching when you log into your account on the Dashboard page.

It doesn't do anything to your keyword or ranking. It's just a way to easily keep track of your tests.

I hope that makes sense.

Dragoshani - I'm guessing what you're asking is if I contacted YSM about Content Match? Is that correct?

If that is what you want to know, YSM is saying that their Content Match program is overloaded with clients, so it isn't working very well right now. If you have a Content Match account that you've recently updated ads or bids on, you might have gotten yourself turned off by editorial. If that happened, they will not do anything to turn you back on (or so I've been told). My rep did say that in the near future, they are working on it and will release a better version that will support all their clients. Right now, there isn't enough bandwidth to support everybody, that is why they will not help you get turned back on.

If you have anymore questions let me know...

You can try to open a new account. She said that currently they are not letting anybody open a Content Match account. Our rep is not the brightest crayon in the box, so I would give it a try and see if it works. If you are getting impressions, then it is working. If you are not getting impressions over a couple of days, try checking on the status of the approval. If it is still pending call YSM and ask if they can help. If it is approved and still no impressions, it could be a tech problem on YSM's side. You would have to call them and have them fix it. They will tell you at that point if CM is down.

So, I would give it a try.

Many times i try to open new account . Every time , don't any impression , don't any clicks , some bots and all. CM is default enabled on YSM accounts , how i may disable CM before activate account?
I don't may to call support , because i don't have a good English and live Riga city. But never has been letter from their support. :(

How create new account on Yahoo Search Marketing without enabled CM? Maybe some parameters within create account?

Watch List - yeah, it's made to flag items on Dashboard.

Dragoshani - You're from Riga? I'm from Odessa. Cool!

Do you have a Yahoo rep that you could contact? From what I understand, you want to create a campaign without Content Match on. Is that correct? You can do that when you are creating an ad-group. There is a check box on the Create an Ad-Group screen that you can either check or un-check for content match.

If you do want to have content match, you can check the box. If you do not receive any impressions it is either that they are not setting any more content match accounts live, or there is a technical issue and you will need to either contact Yahoo yourself or get somebody else to call for you.
