Just wanted to make you aware that our desktop editing tool, Search Marketing Desktop, is now available to most of our advertisers (eligibility is based on minimum monthly spend and a few other factors). Using SMD, it takes just a few clicks to modify multiple campaigns, ad groups, keywords and ads at the same time.
For more details, please visit our blog [ysmblog.com] or the SMD sign-up page [advertising.yahoo.com]. We're also hosting a free webinar about SMD this coming Thursday--you can sign up through the link in the blog post.

I'm confused. I thought the MS partnership meant that all search marketing would go through the Ad Center interface. Seems to me like a waste of time to get spun up on a new tool that is going to be obsolete very shortly.

I agree with Arieng, it is confusing. First there is the release of EWS 7.0, then the release of Search Marketing Desktop! How does that all fit with the MS partnership? Why do you make all those changes just a couple of monthes before the integration with Bing? It doesn't make too much sense to me, does it?
I mean it is great to finally have an offline application to handle YSM, but to do it now is confusing.
(It is nice to offer a webinar but what can I do if I leave on the other side of the world and don't want to wait until 2.00am?)
