      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support. 

Yahoo! Showing Ads That Are Not Online

Recommended Posts

This morning, I noticed that there were several new leads for one of my clients coming from one of our paid search accounts for them. Normally this is good news. The only thing is that the account isn't active and we aren't paying for the click throughs. Normally, this is also good news. The only hang up is that the account was down while we were awaiting approval from my client's compliance department. So in this case, it's a bad thing.


The YSM rep talked with her technical team after I showed her proof the ads were running. They said they had never seen this before, didn't know what caused it (yet), and were working to pull down the ads immediately.


Has this ever happened to anyone before? If so, do you know a way of preventing it? I could just not put up a landing page, but YSM requires a landing page to approve ads.


Any thoughts? Thanks.

It's news to me. Could you shut off your budget - or had you already done that?
