    Hello BH'ers,
    I been bidding on this 3 expensive keyword on YSM($2,$1.50 & $1) for about 3months. Yesterday I opened a new YSM account and decided to promote this same keyword and I was amaze that this same exact keyword is all less than a buck(and YES I tested it on the same landing page). Emailed support and they pretty much told me that every account is different depending in different criteria. BUT THIS CHEAPER KEYWORD IS FROM A NEW YSM ACCOUNT. My old account is about 6% CTR since it was opened. Has this ever happened to anybody? I guess I'm transferring my campaign to my new account.

    zeehman,

    you are not alone. I typically move campaigns from account to account if i feel the bidding prices are getting too high. Looks like you uncovered something i've been knowing for quite some time now. I also was told the same by yahoo. I figured hey, lets take advantage of those loopholes before Microsoft moves in and ruins our day.

    Yes,

    Keep it up.....dont forget to move the campaign to another account if it starts to not become as profitable as it did before. Stay happy and profitable!
