I am still on the older AzoogleAds system but I have solicited some peoples opinions on how its working for them.
Over at Digitalpoint it seems pretty thumbs down so far but user sknydave has the most indepth review-
Here’s my quick review of AzoogleAds 2.0
When I was first switched over to 2.0, I made the mistake of going straight to my stats like I do every morning. After a few failed attempts at trying to see my daily stats and having no success, I started to wonder what in the world was wrong. In order to access any account data, you must first “update your profile.” Once you’ve clicked that button you can proceed as usual.
The statistics page is much different, although I honestly don’t use any of the new features available. Some of the features available are simple things like stats by month, day, week, etc. I suppose the search bar and ability to sort by traffic type options may come in handy for some affiliates who run a whole lot of different offers and need an easier way of sifting through their stats. There are also some fancy looking charts available which display clicks/leads, year to date, and a combination of the two. You can also export a CSV file of your stats.
When going through offers available for promotion it is a bit slower than the previous version. One of the nice things I like about 2.0 is the way they now separate links for email, web/banner, search, and incentivized traffic. There is no confusion whether or not an offer is allowed to be promoted through any particular form of internet marketing. Suppression lists and banned keywords are easy to find and download once you’ve clicked on your preferred method of promotion. The sub-id system works exactly the same as it did before.
Making the transition to 2.0 was really easy and after a day or two I am already accustomed to the layout. The only problem I think some will have is in the new format they have decided to use for links. Publishers will have to change all links within 3 months to the new format, so make sure you switch them over!

Here is my quick review.
Azoogle 2.0 is very nice – the new website and interface. The functionality is great, but I find it annoying to not be able to use the back button when searching for offers. Also, I find it kind of hard to find regular 428×90 and 728×90 banners on offers that had them in Azoogle 1.0. The reports are much more advanced in Azoogle 2.0. Another thing I like is the picture of my account manager and his contact info in the upper right hand corner. Overall I think Azoogle has done a good job with version 2.0 but their are a few bugs that could be worked out – such as a few offers that do not redirectly corrects (I believe most of these were fixed yesterday).
Will be interesting to get some first hand experience with it. I should be moved this week.
