Many advertisers expected the CPC (cost per click) prices to go up after the Yahoo / Microsoft adCenter transition was complete.

One advertiser said in a WebmasterWorld thread he CPC prices "soared" by 40%. He said:

We are seeing a 40% increase in click costs on average since late September on existing AdCenter campaigns. Our transitioned campaigns are seeing a similar percentage increase when compared to what we were paying with Yahoo.

The costs are so out of control, he has pulled and pause his campaigns with adCenter. He said:

We have paused all of our campaigns within AdCenter as they no longer yield a positive ROI... and we're not talking about a tinker-toy budget either - deep 7 figure annual ad-spend.
