@ arieng: Some Yahoos will be moving over to Microsoft at some point in the future, but details are forthcoming. I'm on the Communications team and also work on display advertising projects, so I'm expecting that I'll remain with Yahoo!.
@ Leosghost: Not sure what you're asking...can you clarify?
@ JacksonMahoney: This is the current timeline:
We will begin with the algorithmic search transition, with a goal of completing transition of at least the U.S. market by the end of 2010. We also hope to make significant progress transitioning U.S. advertisers and publishers in 2010 prior to the crucial holiday season, but may wait until 2011 if we determine that the transition will be more effective after the holiday season. We will notify advertisers of this plan and other details surrounding their accounts well in advance of any changes. It may take approximately 24 months to fully transition to Microsoft’s search platforms.
