Whats going on with Adwords & Their Content Network?
I wonder if Mark has any news for us whats the latest with Adwords and placing ads on the content network. Many, many people are complaining, including myself, that when you place an ad (image or text) on the content network it gets flagged for "pending review" and can take weeks before your ads "hopefully" get displayed.
I have browsed their forum and read through tons of complaints and there are some wild rumors going around about that they are either "understaffed" ; "could not be bothered with the small advertisers" etc.. , business is business, so if google wants to take that approach then I dont know.
Anyway, this is frustrating as striking while the iron is hot does not apply anymore. Well on the content side of Adwords that is. Image ads are a major problem to get approved now days.
Mark since you do plenty of advertising on Adwords and probably speak a lot to Google have you any news on this? MSN or Yahoo advertising is looking mighty appealing at this point :)
