Yeah well you know what guys, i wouldn't mind that much if Yahoo! would do just that because i have a few PFI pages listed at Inktomi so to be listed just under the PPC but over the free Google listing on Yahoo serps would be very nice for me.

The ones listed at the top of Google would still be on the 1st page but because the PFI from Ink would be listed just over it then it would be lucrative for Yahoo and VEEEEERY good for PFI pages like mine here and since Google would still be the main supplier of free listings i think it would be a Win/Win/Win/Win situation (Yahoo/Google/paid programs/surfers).

I still don't understand why Google don't have a PFI program though. I mean what negative part of a PFI program is SOOOOO important to reject having thousands of WMs like us paying them for a PFI listing here? They are literally losing millions and millions because of that..can anyone explain that to me!

Sure Google doesn't have to answer to money hungry shareholders because it is not public but hey...who would be stupid enough to say no to all these PFI millions here!

Seems Yahoo peepz believe their company screwed up by having Google results and logos all throughout their site. I was rumored they are doing their own PPC type adword stuff on special campains for those who wanna pay 20k a month. No surprise here, seems Yahoo is gonna go the route to phase out google and try to regain search kingship. Thus Google should open portal, then Yahoo still loses.
