Transition To Microsoft AdCenter

October 12, 2010

Up until now I hadn’t had any issues migrating Yahoo account data to the Microsoft Advertising Adcenter.

However today my attempts to transfer data were fraught with errors and failure.

The following are several of the messages I received from Microsoft while attempting to make the transition from a Yahoo account  to a Bing account.

The following message is the first one I received and I have no idea why…

I then attempted to import an account and got this account import errors message.

I tried to import the account several more times and finally got it imported only to learn there were “71 issues” with my account.

Not one but seventy one issues…

I can’t wait to discover how long it takes for me to get each one of them resolved!

Microsoft hasn’t yet begun buying Adwords to promote their news to Google’s audience.

Back for its second season, the Microhoo now Binghoo search opera is still missing the protagonist  – purported higher CTR and a combined reach still won’t produce the plot’s much needed hero – Relevance.

But stay tuned searchers!

The next episode where – when and if a Microhoo / Binghoo deal happens – will produce new messaging where they proclaim Relevance performs miracles on the screen before your very eyes!
