First off, I’ll share a bit about my Panama adventure so far. All in all, I think the interface has a lot of potential, with many enhancements over the old Direct Traffic Center. Pros: Quicker page loads and simpler, more intuitive navigation Fast ad entry and activation Ability to run separate Sponsored Search and Content Match campaigns, with separate monitoring Alerts section warns you instantly about issues or issues along with your accountAll is not well, but it. Cons: Glitches in the system won’t allow me to go into certain sorts of monitoring URLs.
I had to create an entire new Atlas campaign for my content material ads, because for some reason the Panama interface could not handle my old campaign monitoring even though I’m using an identical tracking in ALL my existing ads. Makes no sense. Problems with geo concentrated on, that have been mentioned at Search Engine Watch Forums. I was shopping forward to using this characteristic to put off Canadian clicks, but I had heard at SES Chicago that there might be issues, and certain enough, it appears there are even supposing Yahoo jumped in and downplayed them. I’ll hold off for now, until this gets ironed out.
Editors Note: Apparently the author of the SEW Forum thread asked that it be removed from the forum so I’ve delinked it here. It’s too bad, in a way, because I was hoping to hear how every thing played out. Guess I’ll have to get my info elsewhere!Limits on the number of campaigns. As a Platinum advertiser, I was confident we’d be able to have 100 campaigns, in place of the normal and way too low limit of 20. We began out with 28 campaigns. Well, when I tried to create a new crusade, I ran into a limit the interface told me I could not add any longer new campaigns.
So I called Yahoo, and the rep instantly put through an override to get me back to 100. However, it took about 30 minutes to kick in. This was at the tip of the day, so I couldn’t create or work on my new crusade until a better morning. That means lost income for me and for Yahoo. Stupid editorial rejections. This is nothing new for Yahoo, but it’s still stressful.
I just had my Content ad for Strictly Slots Magazine rejected. Reason?”Promotes online gambling. ” Uh, sorry Yahoo, you’re wrong. It’s a zine subscription, not online playing. So now I’ve emailed them with an appeal, and I’m sure I’ll end up calling later to get the ball rolling. Which results in my final complaint.
No improvement in responding to emails. I’ve resorted to just calling them rather than sending emails into the black hole. I never get replies to my emails. The only reason I emailed them about Strictly Slots is as a result of even if it’s 9 a. m.
here in Michigan, it’s 6 a. m. on the West Coast, and no one’s home at Yahoo yet. That’s not likely their fault, but it’s still worrying. Good buyer provider departments have longer CS hours to account for time zone variations.
Now, a bit about my blog woes. I’ve read a lot about “the hot Blogger” and its skill to host your blog in your own custom domain. I took the plunge a few weeks ago and acquired my own domain, with the goal of finding my blog by myself URL instead of a “blogspot” one. I was extremely joyful to see that I could just post my Blogger blog on my domain. Problem is, I can’t get it to work.
I followed all the instructions and waited 3 days, but still nothing. I think it has to do with that silly QuickBlog from GoDaddy that I tried to establish. But I really do not know. I’m a complete novice when it comes to this stuff, so I’m studying by trial and mostly error!But, that’s the best way to learn on occasion.
