    Several Microsoft adCenter advertisers are recently unhappy with the quality of traffic they are seeing from adCenter.

    The conversion rates on adCenter, as reported by a few advertisers, has been as low as ever. Based on over 200 clicks (not impressions, but clicks):

    * Google has a 3.9% conversion rate
    * Yahoo has a 2.2% conversion rate
    * Microsoft has a 0.0% conversion rate

    i disagree.
    Personally, i got high conversion rate on adCenter more than others. I think it depends on what kind of product you are advertising on. However there are less traffic volumes than Y!SM or AdWords.

    Testing them by yourself is better ;)

    I promote electronic product and get traffic every day in a month, but usually have a sale in the first day and last day of a month.

    I've generally seen higher conversion rates on MSN, followed by Google then YSM.

    But as always this depends very much on how your accounts are setup, the product/service, etc etc

    Thanks.

    For the people who are reporting satisfactory conversion rates, what kind of products are you promoting?

    Im still working with Adcenter on my ads. There's one in the fitness niche where the clicks and CTR is there but no conversions. I spoke to an Adcenter rep and we tried the Dynamic Text so Im going to give it a week and see what happens.

    But what I noticed from Adcenter the longer you are there the better the clicks and CTR.

    Honestly, you guys have to stop blaming piss poor conversion rates on the quality of traffic. Conversion rates are primarily determined by the quality of your work, so stop cobbling together landing pages and slashing and burning ad campaigns. By the way, I don't trust what anyone has so far said in this thread because the term 'conversion rate' is general, not specific. Every business model on the Internet or in any marketplace has a range of typical conversion rates. For example, freemium models typically convert two to three percent of the time. As where direct sales typically ranges from eight to fourteen percent, but has plenty of outliers that exceed twenty or even twenty-five percent. Which suggests that conversion rates are more dependent on the presentation of the sales pitch than the actual product itself.

    Don't blame the ad company because you suck. Admit to yourself, a 4% conversion rate is generally a shit job, and if you work hard to become well rounded you can do a much better job. I'm willing to bet that majority of people reading this and posting in this thread want to be independent affiliate marketers. Well, the truth is that it works best as a complementary skill, or as supplementary source of income with a product you've created and are selling. Ever wondered why web hosting is so damn cheap? They're selling the majority of people a ton of shit that compliments their service. Another example, authors of so called money systems whether they're free or not generally hone in on affiliate networks they've got accounts for, web hosting, stock design sites, or anything that relates to the niche that they can make a couple bucks off of. Which is largely why so many of you think that this game isn't about looks.

    There is no such thing as learning how to sell something at x, y, or z rate. Becoming a student of sales isn't a part-time gig. You've got to learn how to determine, analyze, and dismantle business models while only looking at their presentational stage. You can't do it once or twice a day, no, you need to do it all the time. Sales is a mindset, not an occupation.

    I got more conversion from adWords than adCenter. In fact, I stopped my adCenter campaign just after 1 week
