    Kanoodle has changed their structure a bit changing plural words and removing any listings we have of these in their most common search words. I had a bit of an issue with cellular phone and cellular phones. They are now also having to approve all keywords.
    While I am sure it may take a while to get over the changes I certainly hope they wern't using Overture as a reference.
    Just a heads up to all to keep an eye on things and check what may have happened to any of your search words.

    I expressed some concerns to them that they are going to reward lazy affiliates by grouping misspelled words in with the singular and plural words, in that, according to their announcement one bid would end up covering them all, but they 'reassured' me that this would only be the case in a few very basic cases. Fewer variations means higher bids, so it will be interesting to watch and see the affect their policy has on bidding strategies.

    If they can raise the bid and group the responses, they will increase their revenue.

    For me, the only thing it means is that I have to spend more money to get the same thing. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Frankly, I liked being trusted with my relevancy. The instant live time was an advantage that they will no longer have.
