May 20th, 2009, 10:22 AM #1Is MSN AdCenter Worth It?
I've been running Adwords and YSM for years, but just recently expanded my campaigns to MSN. The traffic seems to convert just fine, but I'm disappointed with the volume.
From all three PPC sources combined, MSN makes up only 3.1% of the traffic volume, and assuming it takes an equal time to manage as Google and Yahoo, it takes up 33% of my PPC management time.
My thinking is that the time may be better spent expanding the Google and Yahoo campaigns rather than managing the AdCenter account for such minimal traffic --even if that traffic is profitable. Has anybody else cut ties with Microsoft after finding the volume simply doesn't justify the effort?
Actually I think I just convinced myself... why not focus that extra 33% PPC-management time on the engines that deliver 96.9% of the traffic and probably 95% of the sales. Should be a no-brainer unless I'm missing something. Thoughts?

I also found that I received a much higher number of fraudulent clicks from them than Y! and G combined, which meant that I had to police their traffic quite a bit more. They claim to catch most fraudulent activity, however in one day I had over forty clicks from the same IP address that they apparently missed. Again, they were very good at providing credits when this occurred, it just got to a point where they were started sucking up more time than they were worth.
