It does indeed pique my interst, however you have to have callers before you have paying adverts orthey wont truly work.
I imagine your not going to see anything of the sort (yet) for at least a year and as long as they are cleary marked and out of the main serps it should work well.
They did, around 2 years ago, suddenly place paying OV ads at the top of the serps knocking decent sites out in favour of paid listings.
Obviously this didnt work - lesson there Google.
Ive also seen MSN over the last 4 years or so attempt a variety of 'models' (to coin an awful phrase) and its interesting that they appear to be snapping at Googles heels in terms of layout and general theme.
Its going to be good providing they dont get google err im mean greedy.

Guess this [advertising.msn.com] answers that question.
75k minimum spend. Ouch for the little guys.

I'm very disappointed to hear about this because they will never achieve anything on some of the smaller niche sectors / searches.
What a shame the listings at the top and bottom could have worked so well if implemented in a similar way to Overture...

MSNuk is still Overture as such
I used to be a Uk sponsored/featured advertiser back in the day, but no more ...

MSN will be using Overture until the end of 2005 I think?
I know the top 3 sponsored results appear on the current MSN but as far as I am aware there is no requirement for a minimum annual spend to be featured there.
Currently, in order to feature at the top you have to be one of the top 3 bids on the search phrase entered.

MSN is already selling CPC on current engine. I heard their Management Panel s*cks compared to Overture's.
