Maybe you can help me. I have had this same issues of not getting any impressions in the past 2 weeks, and I have called in and have received help, but honestly I do not think I am getting the correct answer.
Please take a look at my campaign and see what is the reasoning behind this. I am very frustrated at Microsoft for giving me no clear answer, and just leading me around and around each and everyday.

Hello Trung Ngo,
As part of the adCenter quality initiative and is designed to carefully assess the quality and relevance of an ad and landing page to a Bing user's query, to ensure the best experience for the user and a better marketplace for our advertisers. We asset the following:
Q: I’ve improved the quality of my ads and landing pages based on your quality guidelines; can I have my quality reassessed?A: If you have made improvements to the quality of your keywords, ads, landing pages, or site type in conjunction with our guidelines, you may notice a positive improvement in your ad traffic. However, this is not guaranteed.
Q: Why is my ad showing up in a lower position or not at all? A: There are several reasons why your ad could or could not be showing up in the Bing listings:
Also, as a result of seasonality and increased engagement by advertisers, you may also need to adjust your default keyword bids (maximum cost-per-click) to remain in the same position as before. In addition, we look for quality of ads and landing pages to ensure the best experience for the search user.
Q: Can I just bid more to get back to my old position? What do I need to bid? A: In order for your search ads to perform consistently, you will need to improve the quality and relevance of your advertisements. You may also need to adjust your default keyword bids (maximum cost-per-click) to remain in the same position as before. I do not know how much you would need to bid to perform at your former position. However, I do encourage you to adjust your default keyword bids, and always follow the adCenter editorial guidelines.
Q: I’m seeing drops in rank/traffic on my site, but not my competitors … why? A: Advertisers can experience differing levels of impact because of varied content types and a number of other quality factors. We evaluate all advertisers with the same criteria that will bring the best user experience to our searchers.
Q: Are you removing me from the auction? A: No; if your keyword, ad, and landing page combinations are of low quality or relevance based on the criteria we have specified, you may notice a decrease in impressions and clicks to your site. For your search ads to perform consistently, you will need to improve the quality and relevance of your advertisements. You may also need to adjust your default keyword bids.
I hope these helps to answer some of your questions.
Thank you for the information, but I am very aware of these answers, as I have been managing PPC for the past 5 years, both Google & Bing and I have never seen of heard of any of the ridiculous answer that was presented to me by Microsoft supervisor, hence I thought I might come to you for help.
If you go into our account, right now I am just running 1 campaign, 1 adgroup and 1 keyword which is our product brand name using broad, phrase and exact and bidding $10 CPC in trying to get some impressions. I truly feel that something is wrong Microsoft system and hence many of us are having this issues. Google is even more strict on PPC than Bing, and I have never seen such instances where I could not figured out the reason as to why my ads are not receiving any impressions.
Anyhow, see if you can help me with this. I am quite upset with Bing.
I do understand that is it frustrating that you are not getting the results that you are wanting. However with the content that you are advertising does not apparently to meet our editorial criteria.
I do understand you are involve in PPC for a very long time just by looking at the structure. However new updates and guidelines may have made it a little different.
Bing has always been about quality and unique content on the landing page. If you feel like there is something wrong. Please Contact Support and provide a new service request and we can investigate further.
With all due respect, I was a network and system engineer for many years (CCNP, CNE, MCSE), I started right as NT 4.0 Server came out and I know Microsoft is notorious for "Fix one thing and it breaks 10 others" (Service Packs for example). I was so glad to get away from that then Microsoft takes over Yahoo's PPC and with adCenter I feel like I'm right back at square one again with Microsoft. I cringe every time I hear about "upgrades, updates, improvements" to the adCenter platform because that always seems to cause something else to go out of whack. Right now adCenter is 5 hours behind in reporting and I can't determine the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of the new strategy I implemented. I may not know until I'm $1,000 in the hole again. I'm really surprised adCenter hasn't 'Blue Screened' on me yet.
The last month Microsoft was busy updating their Adcenter, and it just really messed up all of my conversions and data, and they don't even send us an email notification like Google Adwords once an update is scheduled.I also feel, that Microsoft changes really corrupted the system and hence the reason why so many of us are affected and no clear reasoning behind Microsoft explanations.
Can you tell me which account you see the budget overspending for? That should not happen.
Also we're looking into slow reporting.
Not trying to get into anyones face here, and I can appreciate everyones frustration as i have certainly had some of my own..
We should not forget however that we are all in some form or another entreprenuers, and being involved in many projects as a business owner and an employee one thing I have learned is that sometimes "speed to market" is more important than perfection. What is perfection anyway? To me perfection is the constant and never ending conquest towards improvement and advancement, exceeding expectations and leaving competition in the dust.
It will never be perfect, thats what makes it fun, and if we spent all our time working on our ideas and trying to make them perfect before we rolled them out we would never see them hit the market.
I beleive the teams at MS are working pretty hard to offer everyone a great service and I don't know about the rest of you but I like my rent payments and my hydro bills...haha ohh wait thats right I don't have one.
anyway just some thoughts I think maybe we all should consider before we start slamming something that brings a lot of opportunity to people around the world.
If its not working, change your approach
I just wanted to say that our firm has experienced the traffic AND impressions from MSN Adcenter suddenly just DIE without any modification to our campaigns, landing pages or bids.
We are bidding competitively, our landing pages are very relevant to the keywords that we are advertising under and our CTR on most keywords is over 10%. We have never missed a payment for the traffic we have purchased and are not advertising anything that is censored or illegal, so I am absolutely puzzled as to why this would happen.
I contacted support with no concrete answer as to why this has happened, if anyone on this forum has the ability to look at our situation here is the ticket number:
We spend $2000+ a day with other advertising networks and have done for the last 5 years. Could someone please help me out here. It sounds like a lot of other people are having the same problem as well.
I am sure this is a simple technical problem on Microsoft's side that has occurred with the latest updates that happened on March 12, 2011, that can be fixed easily as this is directly when the traffic started to die, but as for now it is SO frustrating. PLEASE HELP!!!
I have looked into the ticket number that you have provided. We are currently looking into your account to see what the issue may be.
Currently your case is being looked at by our devlopment team to see if there are any techincal issues with your account. I will follow up with them and provide any details i can.
Thank you for your fast reply. I will wait patiently to hear back from you on here. In the meantime, should I just open a new account and import all my old campaigns from my existing account into a new one. Could you or someone that has had the same problem share if this has helped to regain the flow of traffic.
