As long as they offer advertisers an option to opt-out it sounds great. MSN search is small enough that if they start sending junk traffic from content that we can't avoid, the acount could just be shut down and not miss much. Improving Ad Center and making it easier to track match types would be preferable to having a content network to deal wtih.

All I can say is "Always Imitated But Never Duplicated". If Yahoo! can't beat Google, how can MSN do it? (just an opinion)

It's all about critical mass--something that Google has, and its rivals don't.
In other words, if a page is about "red widgets," there's a good chance that Google will have ads specifically targeted to people who are interested in red widgets. What's more, they'll be able to serve geotargeted "red widgets" ads internationally, not just in the U.S.. What other contextual ad networks have this kind of depth and reach?

somehow i suspect that microsoft has far more the will to get international in a short period of time with their product than yahoo ever had.
at least you can select many countries from the dropdown menu in their publisher subscription form.
it's 2008 and we're still waiting for a decent adsense alternative.

Some competition in this segment of market will help a lot.

They can only compete with google adsense if they rollout to outside of the US.
