Overture Down?

Guest Entry by Erin O’Brien, SEM Analyst-Bruce Clay, Inc

What’s going on over at Yahoo!? Over the last few days we have been having trouble logging in to manage our Yahoo! sponsored search accounts. Yes, Yahoo Search Marketing was down for “system upgrades” this past weekend, but it still seems to be running extremely slow or not at all.

Yesterday the system was down periodically, and now today it took 20 minutes to get to the login page, and when I did I only got the message:

“System Slowness
We are currently experiencing intermittent delays and slowness with our system. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.”

Hopefully things will be fixed later today. Who knows what position our top performing keywords will be in or how much has been charged to the accounts since the system has been down.
