View Full Version : MSN Not Showing Yahoo Ads?
05-02-2006, 08:27 PM
Since May 1st, it appears that the MSN AdCenter is not filling in with Yahoo ads!
Please tell me this is just a temporary glitch...
Please tell me that MSN would not this switch while the product is still in beta!

Actually, it is dependent on what cookie happens to be on your computer as to whether you see MSN or YSM ads, so your cookie must have been reset then, and hence you are only seeing MSN ads. I believe that recently it was changed so that you could also get your cookie reset to showing only MSN ads if you did some searching via the adcenter.search.msn.com interface (which only shows adCenter ads).
Right now they are running at 70 MSN / 30 YSM.

LOL, of course they changed it a few hours after I posted my response ;) It is now (or will be in a few hours) 100% MSN.

From a business standpoint, don't you think this is a bit odd (dumb)?
Literally thousands of advertisers CAN'T get PPC advertisment on MSN... Ads not delivered by Yahoo and they can't sign up for AdCenter (still beta)!
Very, very strange way Microsoft has for doing PR (public relations) with a launch of a product.......

Actually, it is now out of beta so anyone can sign up.

I was just informed they are now serving 100% of the PPC traffic.... guess Yahoo is now without them as a publishing partner.
