My PPP account turned me into an Advertiser!

Posted on Thursday, April 19th 2007 5:25 pm by menj in Offbeat

Now this is one really weird bug and I’ve lodged a complaint here. I logged in as usual into my PayPerPost account with my Blogger id (username: menj1980) and strangely enough, the PayPerPost system identified me as an Advertiser and I was taken to the Advertiser interface instead! Even weirder still, I got USD100 credited into my account for making Opps.

ROTFL.

Of course the drawback is that now I can’t even go to the Marketplace and take any of the Opps meant for Bloggers because the system thinks that I am an Advertiser. Actually I am really tempted to use that USD100 in the Advertiser account but I already have an Advertiser account (with a different username). And what happened to all the posts that I’d taken for PPP? I really hope someone at PayPerPost can restore menj1980 back and hopefully none of the Opps that I’ve taken were lost in the process.

      That’s really weird. I too have an advertiser’s account but I can’t log in both as advertiser and publisher at the same time. That’s the only thing I know.

      Example: Those who are working for McCanne Erikson, Account Executives, Creatives, etc.

      I’ll give 10 points for the best answer!

      I tried google adsense, but i’d rather get paid to my paypal account than to my bank account. Are there any others that would agree to this?

      already have 3 blogs under the same google account. Do advertisers prefer that you have 1 blog for 1 account. The stats for the blogs are combined when you have only 1 account. Thanks. Was more worry about my advertisers. Thanks

      I’m not a tech n00b, but am finding that navigating Yahoo PPC to be more difficult than I would have expected. In Local search I see advertisers in my industry that have their logos next to their listings. I want a listing like that.

      How do I get that? I’ve signed up for a sponsored search account, but can’t seem to find anything about this.

      Thanks in advance.

      I received this…
      Dear Adwords Advertiser.
      We are about to drain as much as we can, as fast as possible, from your Adwords Account.
      You have an Adword advertisement appearing on ‘scraper’ sites. Please be informed that although we have absolutely no intention of buying your product we intend to go to those sites as often as possible and click your Adword every time it appears.

      This will provide some nice extra income for that site but will soon deplete your Adwords account.

      We are doing this because we are a group that hates ‘link-farms’ and ‘scraper’ sites.

      it ends…

      Your best defense against this is to ensure your adword does not appear on any scraper sites. The easiest way to do this is to go into your Google Adwords Campaign Settings and turn off the ‘Content Network’ option.

      While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense
      account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since
      keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage
      our advertisers in the future, we’ve decided to disable your account.

      Please understand that we consider this a necessary step to protect the
      interests of both our advertisers and our other AdSense publishers. We
      realize the inconvenience this may cause you, and we thank you in
      advance for your understanding and cooperation.

      above is google reason for canceling my account which is unfair to me because they also took away all the money that i have made, i want the money that i have already made from adsence back.

      Im looking to start a small advertising company and I am wondering how the company will be paid by their accounts. Do you receive a percent of sales if it can be traced back to your advertising as the reason for a new sales account? Do you get paid a lump sum up front for ad expenses and keep what is left after advertising? How do you pitch an ad and how does copywriting a slogan work? Does the creator and company own the right to such slogans or copywrited pictures?

      I’ve got a bunch of videos on my YouTube account and I wanna earn money on them, but I’m under 18. My parents agree, but how can I create an AdSense account if my age on my google account is under 18?

      I’ve noticed a lot of websites lately want us to create an account (give personal info or at least an email address) just so we can access the site, or read a story. Why are they doing this?

      I understand sites like Salon requesting an account (you pay for their journalism) or Yahoo, (they provide services for you), but why do you have to be logged in at IMDB in order to see more info about movies?

      Not specifically IMDB (I just used them as an example because you didn’t always have to log in), but lately I’m noticing it more and more on the net. If I’m being bombarded with all these ads, shouldn’t that pay for the site? Why do they want my email address? Do they make revenues off that?

      Why are so many sites today requiring more and more info from the visitors?
