>Yahoo! Search Marketing, Geo Targeting, and Geo Modified keywords…

17 Nov

>What on earth is happening with Yahoo! and their Geo-Targeting?

My Y!SM accounts’ performance in the US and Ireland is down the hill. Many of my campaigns even stopped receiving impressions from sponsored search.

According to Yahoo! this is caused by the geo-modified keywords (e.g. hotels in New York) that I’m using on the accounts and the geo-targeting… Apparently I can’t use both geo-targeting (e.g. targeting New York state, or even the USA) and geo-modified keywords at the same time. I was told that if I want to use such keywords, I have to target the entire Market (i.e. USA & Canada or UK & Ireland, etc). This is absolutely ridiculous.

Anyone else has problems like that?

    >This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this poses some interesting questions!
