    Yesterday I set up a adcenter account, picked a product from clickbank, set some keywords and 2 ad variations, set budget $100/month to see how it works.

    I've checked everything, my billing is ok, campaign and ads are active but no impressions after 5 hours. On their estimation tool I should get about 8,000 impressions

    How much I need to wait or what's happening?

    adcenter has been buggy all week

    all of my ads have zero impressions or clicks today so far, and no one can give me a straight answer

    Adcenter doesn't allow duplicate domains anymore specially for new accounts you need to bid high and wait a long ass time till you build some trust they say :s

    @ OP - If you aren't getting any impressions it's probably because you 1) don't have enough KW's added to your adgroups 2) have your bids set too low to trigger your ads to serve 3) haven't given it enough time 4) Your Kw's have low search volume

    With MSN you want to add way more KW's to a campaign than you would for Adwords because of MSN/YSM's lower consumer search volume.

    Yeah, been having same problem for about week and a half. I've done everything they've advised, and still no improvement. Even increased my bids extremely, just to gather some pick me up or see if it was the problem, still nothing.

    Ever since the "official" merger I guess things are F'd up around there momentarily.

    I mean, the traffic just fell off a cliff, was getting around 20,000 - 30,000 impressions a day sometimes more, with a decent clickthrough rate, so don't know what's going on exactly.

    if the account is new - try different keyword with more traffic just to see if it is working .
    try to use the "ad preview tool" if you don't see it there ,call them let them dig - maybe they flagged your account (many reasons for that ....) .

    are u bidding for usa. try to bid high for 1 keyword 1st to see if your ad shows.

    if it still don't show the next morning, your account is not working.

    there are many reason and one common problem might be the domain clickbank product you are promoting, after all, 100s of affiliates may have
    bid on that domain and adcenter has flagged it.

    just like adwords, a blacklisted domain in your account will put it on the
    editorial banlist= no impressions.

    I sort of agree with Tuffy. My account just stopped serving ads on 6 27 2011, I looked at my web log which said some thing to the idea of Account review (i tried posting the exact link here but was not allowed) . Basically account review. This day all of my ads stopped serving, I hopped they would review my account soon and let it get back up and running but no luck for 14 days.

    So I created another account yesterday, thinking that the account has been flagged. I put in the same campaigns,adgroups,keywords,ads as the old account, still my ads weren't serving. I decided to create a campaign containing my own name with a new unique URL just for testing sake. Still no ads appearing even for the keyword where its my name.

    I called up adcenter, the rep looked over my account and said all she could think of was that my accounts billing has not been verified as yet. She also mentioned the editorial process but all of my keywords and ads were approved.

    I worked for Bing prior to the Search Alliance, so im 100% sure i set up everything correct and it must be their review process but I'm just unsure why new accounts are taking this long to become live.

    Now I am getting a few 100 impressions daily with just some clicks per week.
