To Renomart ,
You mean for Google Australia when you entered serach term then click on sponsor search on google page then the ads will go directly to Live.com , It's right?

That's right, Nadia.

Just did a search for 'real estate investment'.
In the sponsored links on right hand side, they appeared at position #5 with;
Search for property investment

Note that our Google Forum Charter [webmasterworld.com] prohibits specific search terms. I'm going to allow an exception in this one case.
Not seeing this in the US - bu in Australia the ads are using www.live.com.au as their display url.

All of sponsor search are go directly to their site didn't shown up live.com
| 3:57 am on May 10, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Yes, you are right about the URL.
Maybe Live are just targeting Australia for a while and not Thailand.

Google should take the funds thus obtained and spend them, cent-for-cent, on purchasing traffic from Microsoft's own services.

That is great news, I would be happy to see some competition. Infact I am hoping to see some significant improvement from msn interms of quality and marketing, after that bill gates interview about search industry.

Well it shows google are fair. I wonder if bill gates will allow ads for google on there search too. Not that they need to. They were recently voted the most popular brand in the world.
