    Hi there,
    SEMrush
    I appreciate all the feedback on this forum and wanted to let you know about some new features we’re launching today.

    Some of the features include:

    Enhancements to the process for creating an ad
    Low quality index alert – Advertisers will be alerted if their quality index drops below a certain level.
    Ad generator – Add titles and short sentences to the ad generator which will automatically combine various permutations of those titles and short sentences to form a set of candidate ads
    Campaign optimization – Optimize your campaigns according to your specified goals
    And more.

    We’ve posted a more detailed article on the new features on our Yahoo! Search Marketing blog: http://www.ysmblog.com/blog/2007/08/30/enhanced-tools-and-new-options/

    As more updates and enhancements become available, we’ll definitely keep you updated.

    All the best,
    YahooPete

    Increasing the initial deposit to $30 is not a good feature in my opinion.

    Pete! My god pete, I nearly had to replace my undershorts today when I hit sort by impressions, and it sorted in DESCENDING ORDER! Thank you! This has been something that annoyed me since the day I began using the most recent version.

    I can see that YSM is making good advancements in the system efficiency department, but the ajax code in use seems incredibly slow, even on fast computers for the javascript end of things... any chance of an offline editor in the future?

    Hey there,

    Thanks for chiming in with your thoughts.

    I’m going to share your feedback with the product team. We want to know what our advertisers like, don’t like and features they want to see.

    Hope everybody has a great weekend!

    All my best,
    YahooPete

    YahooPete - Will you be kicking off ads with low CTRs? Many terms on Yahoo are just filled with advertisers and affiliates of the same product, and I believe it creates a pretty bad experience for the end user. Also, is Yahoo intent on having up to 4 blue banner positions vs. 2 or 3 at Google? 4 advertisers blue bannered definitely takes away from the return from being blue bannered (and the end-user experience), and only having 3 advertisers blue bannered may actually help Yahoo's bottom line through higher bids.
