So we should be able to put this on some pages without upsetting G, but then again maybe we can expect a T&C change.
As far as I can see they want you to implement it into your sites which may (will) draw people into their own search system and PPC ads.
In it's initial phase they are not offering any remuneration for this.
Why would anyone want to jeopardise their AdSense earnings just to send clicking customers to Yahoo?
They start their e-mail off by saying that they will be testing "a new platform" and "in the meantime" they are offering this "free" test. The $5000 is based on the best site incorporation of this new tool.
Think I'll just sit on the sidelines for now.
The contest is open to the US only however I didn't read anything that would restrict you from using it (if you so choose) on your foreign sites. You just wouldn't be eligible for the $5000.
This may come back to restrict how this publisher program is implemented.
My EU Over accounts are still Overture not Yahoo. They may be having legal problems implementing this worldwide. Also Yahoo has always been restrictive as to where the Over ads showed up. If you wanted to be in the UK or DE you had to sign up for their local programs.
I've also noticed that Yahoo has no problem sending Adwords clicks or Overture clicks to my banned site. I guess money talks when it comes to Y.
I mean, I *might* put this on one of my low traffic Beta sites just to see how it might work.
BUT, does Yahoo really think people are going to advertise for them for free? Are they serious? We might win $5000, but chances are that we won't, that we will get nothing and will have worked for free.
I suppose this might interest some people, but I wish Yahoo would only contact me if they actually decide that they are going to pay webmasters for advertising for them.
Or, am I missing something? We don't get paid for this, do we?
I want to be absolutely sure I don't jeopardize my standing with AdSense first though.
