"Low cost, low traffic"

What do you like best?

Yahoo makes it easy to get your message in front of a large audience of engaged clients across devices, partners, and properties with proven advertising solutions that drive results. It's a great resource for people to find you and that's the main goal for me. I like being able to reach customers who don't use Google or Bing. Yahoo advertising is extremely simple to use and follow. The exposure connects you to millions of potential customers.

What do you dislike?

It is extremely difficult to control which sites your ads are appearing Gemini literally does not show you where your ads are. The interface is quite buggy and nearly as effective as it could be. I can't choose a period longer than a month and this is very annoying. Yahoo is not a popular, so the foot traffic is very low. I've never gotten 1/2 the traffic I can get from Google, but I guess that's why the price is so low.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The lack of transparency prevents me from encouraging others to purchase this software. There are no trial periods, so there is no motivation to try the program out. The program is similar to Bing's services.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are reaching customers outside of our usual demographic. Our growth has quickly grown, because of all of the exposure Yahoo has provided us with. The price per click feature allows for immediate results. Customer demand has improved, but I would prefer a higher traffic.

"Lacks a lot of Functionality"

What do you like best?

If advertisers are interested in native ads Gemini is definitely a must as it's one of it's strength and definitely allows to reach a larger audience. Search only makes up a small % of overall volume and it's rather disappointing how limit it is with no opportunity to scale. There have been a lot of changes on the Yahoo side and it's clear that Yahoo Search certainly is not a priority for the company.

What do you dislike?

The UI lacks a lot of functionality and audience is very limited. Since there is no offline editor available it's rather difficult to optimize campaigns. If you limited your campaigns to Yahoo Search only your reach is extremely limited and does not compare to any of the other engines (less than 3% of overall share). Some verticals are still completely "owned" by Bing (Microsoft is serving ads on Yahoo.com) and it's impossible to scale volume.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yahoo Search does have a very limited audience at least for the B2B verticals we are targeting, however, I think there is a lot of opportunity with Native advertising - a product that Yahoo has been pushing for a while.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Yahoo advertising as a paid acquisition channel, though volume is extremely limited.

"Inexpensive, low traffic"

What do you like best?

Yahoo can make it simple to get your message in front of a big audience of engaged clients across products, partners, and properties with confirmed advertising solutions that drive results. It's a great resource for individuals to find you and which the primary goal for me personally. I like being able to reach customers who avoid use Google or Bing. Yahoo advertising is extremely easy to use and follow. The exposure connects you to millions of prospective customers.

What do you dislike?

It is extremely difficult to control which sites your advertisements are appearing Gemini literally does not show you where your advertisements are. The interface is very buggy and almost as effective as it could become. Constantly select a period longer than a month and this is very annoying. Google is not a popular, so the foot traffic will be very low. I've in no way gotten 1/2 the traffic I can get from Google, but I suppose which why the price will be so low.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lack of openness prevents me through motivating others to obtain this software program. Right now there are no test intervals, so there will end up being no motivation to try the program out. This particular program is similar in order to Bing's services.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are reaching customers outside of our own usual demographic. Our growth has quickly grown, due to all of the publicity Yahoo has provided all of us with. The cost per click on on feature permits instant outcomes. Customer demand provides enhanced, but I would choose the higher traffic.

"Yahoo Gemini is improving but still remains well behind Google and even Bing in most aspects "

What do you like best?

I think their display campaigns have more potential due to greater reach than you find on the search network and pretty good capabilities around audience building and retargeting,They also continue to add new features such as the power editor which has made management easier. Policy seems to be easier and less volatile than on other networks. Their customer support team is great also.

What do you dislike?

The interface still lags well behind Adwords in terms of usability, option availability, segmentation, and other aspects. It can be difficult to make the optimizations you want but the Yahoo team is always willing to help.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would get hooked up with an account team if possible, they are great and willing to help make the platform less of a burden.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gemini is helping us reach customers across both search and display and we have found some campaigns that are profitable and worthwhile for us.

"Future of Advertising"

What do you like best?

Yahoo! is a great addition to other marketing efforts "

Installation and deployment are similar to other search platforms, which makes implementation straightforward and accessible.

Reports: Data export is straightforward and granular (or high-level) as desired. Exports to a CSV or XLSX file for manipulation and analysis.

What do you dislike?

Yahoo! Advertising tends to lag behind other SEM platforms for more sophisticated advertising options (such as display). They are slowly recovering, but do not expect the same high-powered analytics capabilities from Google, shall we say.

Revenue tracking and linking conversions / revenue to advertising spend can be tricky to implement and unsuitable for full funnel tracking.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great cost-benefit and allows our ads to be viewed by a broad audience

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Resolving advertising is straightforward: You set your targeting and budgeting option, make a copy of the ad, and start receiving clicks and traffic.

Cost is less than AdWords

Easy to import AdWords campaigns

ROI is high

"Not Worth Using for Native Advertising"

What do you like best?

There's no doubt that Yahoo! has a large network of quality online website and app inventory to choose from and the campaigns I did run generated a strong CPA.

What do you dislike?

My biggest issue with Yahoo! (and this applies primarily to their Yahoo! Gemini native advertising platform) is the lack of transparency. You literally cannot see which websites your ads are appearing on. This was a huge issue for some of the clients I worked with who wanted us to be able to blacklist specifics sites (such as Brietbart) or ensure that their ads didn't appear on controversial placements in general. Not only was this not possible through Yahoo!, but I could not even tell the client what specific websites their ads WERE appearing on. In one phone call with a Yahoo! rep, the individual literally could not even tell me how many websites were in the Yahoo! Gemini inventory network ("probably more than thousands. But I don't know for sure"). I also found the interface itself a little buggy and not as a intuitive as some of the other platforms out there.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Despite generating some strong CPAs and CPCs, the lack of transparency with ad inventory is ultimately what prevents me from recommending this platform.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online marketing (primarily native image and video advertising). The campaigns I ran did generate some strong results, but the lack of control and transparency with ad inventory is why I'm no longer using the product at my agency.

"SEO Marketing using Yahoo"

What do you like best?

Ease of use in using Yahoo has made SEO marketing for some sites I am working on more pleasant, although I have found that there are some glitches that Yahoo needs to work on to make things easier for people trying to utilize free avenues to market.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any real qualms to gripe about except on something unrelated which is their Yahoo messenger, which did not run smoothly, if at all sometimes. t did not synch well with phone users so when I wanted to view people using my phone to hire, it was not possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

more incentives should be in place to market to small businesses e.g. trial periods so that people are motivated to try it out

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I saved money from implementing free ways to advertise.

"An option to compliment your Google advertising"

What do you like best?

Yahoo! Advertising as a complimentary option to your paid search strategy. Getting started with the Yahoo! account team is fast, easy, and extremely helpful - definitely support than your Google support team. The Yahoo! team is a pleasure to work with and they are always willing to lend a helping hand on your account.

What do you dislike?

Scale. Yahoo! /Bing do not provide the same scale that a Google campaign will, which is why I suggest to run as a complimentary marketing effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I don't think Yahoo! search is the end all be all but there is great value in using them along with Google search campaigns.

Creating brand awareness and generating sales lead within the confines of a tight budget. Working on campaigns with different KPI's for the same account can be refreshing .Having different options for search marketing helps and allows a brand to apply learning from one strategy to another.

"Definitely falling behind the pack"

What do you like best?

Gemini has been a great option for cheap CPCs. It just doesn't have the great results that Adwords or Bing has.

What do you dislike?

It is a very manual product. You have to have the account managers do things for you versus doing it yourself for best practice negatives. The bulk uploads are horrible. And, the conversion rates aren't very good.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get used to the fact that you will be working with a new rep every single day. They have so much turnover that your rep will not know anything about your account.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps a lot with branding and is a good alternative than putting all of my eggs into the Adwords basket.

"My opinion of Yahoo"

What do you like best?

The easy to understand how its broken up into 2 main categories.

Search – Ads in Yahoo search results.

Native Advertising – similar to display advertising, ads are placed on sites throughout Yahoo’s partner network.

What do you dislike?

As of now you can’t import Bing Ads campaigns, but our rep said this was on the list for future improvements.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Common features in AdWords and Bing Ads, such as ad extensions, are only available in Gemini via their Bulk Edits process. Unfortunately, this process requires downloading a 51 column CSV and manipulating it referencing the protocol outlined in their bulk edits schema objects and field guide.

Yahoo! Advertising makes it easy to reach our intended target without breaking our advertising budget. It is easy to use and we can easily create multiple campaigns to test out what is working best for us. We can track results and make changes to the advertisements as needed.

What do you dislike?

Our target market doesn't only use Yahoo search so we have to advertise on other mediums as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reaching a target audience we may not be reaching with other tools. Yahoo! reaches a specific target market for us and allows us to easily set up ads.

"Low cost, good ROI, but lower traffic than Google could ever give you"

What do you like best?

I strongly recommend Yahoo! Advertising as an addition to your Paid Search Strategy. From my past experience, I've seen that Yahoo! has always given a great return on investment every time.

Getting and working with a Yahoo! account team is pretty great. It helps take the load of some times as they are willing to work on your account for you and you can schedule weekly calls with them on improving your accounts.

What do you dislike?

I only wish that we could get more volume out of Yahoo! - I've never gotten 1/2 the traffic I can get from Google. But I guess that there is the trade off.

My only wish is that all Yahoo! account teams working with agencies is to keep in mind that we know a lot and have been doing paid search for many years. I found that explaining the basics like keyword match types, landing page relevancy and ad optimization was a bit

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are running ads on Google and have not tried Yahoo! yet - try it out. You can easily import your AdWords account using Bing's own desktop editor, so build time is pretty minimal.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generating low-cost leads and sales for particular businesses on Google AdWords' platform is not always easy—especially for ones that are in a highly competitive space, and they have incredibly thin margins. Advertising on Yahoo! can really be a small, yet refreshing alternative top tier search engine advertising solution, whether you have a tight budget to stick to, or you have unlimited budget.

What do you like best?

I like being able to reach customers who don't use Google or Bing.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately it's hard to know which ads are coming from the Bing network, the Google network, or directly from Yahoo.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely consider Yahoo Advertising as a supplement to Google, Bing, and others.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to drive more traffic to our ecommerce store. We have seen pretty decent ROI from Yahoo Gemini.

"Yahoo's fairly new advertising"

What do you like best?

I like the option of native ads and the fact that yahoo is trying to still keep up.

What do you dislike?

The lack of training available for it and the lack of communication/transparency about what is going on there. We knew that Yahoo was not supposed to serve 100% of the mobile traffic for the Yahoo/Bing merge, but it's also clear that this hasn't happened yet. I think it's extremely confusing that Bing/Yahoo will no longer be together and that Yahoo and Google are having a separate partnership. As an agency, we end up not recommending yahoo, because we are unsure what percentage of the market share it has and the full reach of its ads. I think better engagement, especially with agencies is essential for this product to get more exposure.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is difficult to set up. I would recommend you reach out to reps if you have any. They provide great assistance and do a lot of the set up on their end,

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have had success in revenue generation.

"Great visibility at decent prices"

What do you like best?

Yahoo is sort of flying under the radar but what that means for businesses is that their ad dollar can go much further. Don't discount their reach - we've had amazing results from the ads we've run with Yahoo.

What do you dislike?

The dashboard is a bit lacking in terms of data that is easily accessible, especially when compared to Google's massively intuitive dashboard and robust reporting.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to stretch our ad budget when using Yahoo ads in the past. It was great investment and helped drive traffic to our ecommerce site during peak season shopping.

"Yahoo is efficient but hard to use"

What do you like best?

Overall, the UI is very intuitive, but almost too stripped down. It's easy to see high level performance including credits. The account service is also strong.

What do you dislike?

The user flow from campagins, to ad groups to keywords and ads is confusing and the reports always take too long to download, so they time out. The lack of integration with marin is also frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Move slowly and test before creating campaigns that have issues/hard workflows.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're trying to reach an efficient audience at scale and extend beyond Google and Bing. We have, but its hard to scale.

I really enjoy how simple Yahoo! Advertising was.

What do you dislike?

We are solving how to reach a larger audience. I have realized that if you spend more on advertising the benefits will show with how many people you reach.
