Yahoo! Overture Bid Jamming
So what is bid jamming it’s something you can do in Overture(oops Yahoo search marketing). Bid jamming is when you raise your bid amount to just a penny below the top bidder ..
some people think that placing a 25 GBP bid to get top slot for a 5 GBP a bid keyword is a good idea.. lol well it isn’t
Bid Jamming : Ok, you pick the keyword you want to bid on and find that :
#1 is 25 ( what they pay is 5.01 ) <- silly boy !
#2 is 5 ( what they pay is 4.51 )
#3 is 4.50 (these guys pay .10 )
but you want to play in this keyword. So if you bid 24.99
#1 is 25 ( what they pay is 25.00 )
#2 you 24.99 (but you pay 5.01) <- Bid Jamming
#3 is 5 ( what they pay is 4.51 )
#4 is 4.50 (these guys pay .10p )
Is this is dangerous #1 could drop his bid and jam you, but if you watch it like a hawk #1 will stop bidding silly and the price should even out at the market vaule ..
