Default Son of a bitch.

Who's the fucker outbidding me by .005 on some of my URLS? It's definitely a nifty script, but my glorious plan is to jack the bids up, wait for your to auto-outbid, then drop mine while you go bankrupt.

Oh yes, I will figure you out.

I know exactly what you mean... Quite annoying.

dude don't get me started on that shit....maybe just launch a bunch of campaigns with the same URL (careful to space them apart so you get approved for all of them)...then you can have a whole bunch of small traffic campaigns at 0.01 =) ...buttt you'll be showing your ads to a bunch of your ads to the same people so keep that in mind.

I know there is a script out there that does this and know who is doing it. I think we can replicate this here with a bit of programming.



Bear with me...

yeah, there has been an influx of clowns lately, the outsourced 'make my bid highest brigade' are the funniest!

Yeah that annoys me to no end too. TrafficVance makes it so hard to efficiently place matching bids. I created a tool to do this myself, but I think most people who get tired of doing this manually just use TV's "Make my bid highest" feature and it totally kills the value of those URLs.

I just noticed for a couple of keywords that my bids have little to no chance of showing @ 0.01. Kind of strange when I was the only bidder last week. Now I'm, get this, 8623 in line to receive traffic. WTF! On another I'm 6460 in line for traffic. Someone has been going nuts setting up new creatives. Its got to be automated, there's no way you'd set up that many creatives manually. Seems like overkill because you could knock out most of the competition by setting up 10 creatives bidding on the same kw, why create 1000s?

Unless its a TV error, which I guess is possible.

Anyone else seeing this?
