    It is still geotargeting you based on your location. Try going to adcenter.search.msn.com to see your ads. Otherwise, you will need to go through a proxy.

    Thanks jenstar,

    ok. I tried your adcenter.search.msn.com advice, but still no show. What do you mean when I need to go thru a proxy. How do I do it?

    With Google all I have to do &gl=us to see my ads on display.

    thanks

    I believe she meant that you will need to access your ads via a proxy IP address that's based in the US. You may be able to find a suitable proxy IP here:

    I'm not sure how goint to adcenter.search.msn.com will help. The country option is described as:
    "Use this option to search for web pages from the country/region selected"

    What I want is to be treated as person from the US when I'm in fact in Europe.

    Is there an option I'm missing here? It's so frustrating not being able to see where my ads are showing and what the competition is.

    hi everyone,
    right now, because of the IP address component of our targeting, there's not a way to see your ads if you're located outside of the region you're targeting. so if you live in the UK and you're running US campaigns, or if you live in wyoming and you're targeting los angeles, the only way to see your ads is through a proxy server.

    we've heard that this is a big pain point for our advertisers, so developing a way for advertisers to see their ads from wherever they're located is on our list of feature requests. i don't have an ETA on when this will be released, but in the meantime, you will need to see your ads through a proxy server.

    if you are unable to see your ads even with a proxy server, that might be a different issue - if that's the case, please contact adCenter support. skunker - was support able to help you eventually?

    thanks!

    Hi adcenter,
    My ads have magically reappeared after giving up:) So, I'll just leave it alone for now since it's working. Thanks.

    Anything is better than Google. I was never able to see our Google ads. Admittedly, we were ranked very low for the keywords that we targetted but the lack of predictability in Google AdWords turned me off of their system. Also, they have rediculously high minimum bid requirements for popular keywords (i.e. $5.00 for MySpace). At least MSN is more reasonable.

    I think that as adCenter and YPN grow and develop more functionality, there will be more and more competitive pressure applied to AdWords - which is good news for all of us. ;) Nice to see that adCenter is active in the forums, as well, and is listening to its users - that's a big plus in my book. :)
