On yahoo - if you search on 'brokerage' you will see 4 Overture listings at the top. This is a huge win for Overture users. Anybody else see it?

Still 3 at the top and 2 at the bottom.

What I have noticed though is that nearly every single link on Yahoo has some form of redirect on it, and in a lot of instances, with cerain browsers that the link takes you to a 404 page, but if you are the advertiser, then you still pay for the click, which is quite worrying.

Guess we need to keep a mindful eye on the eyeball time on the landing pages, and if it seems to be 0.01 then we may have a problem.

Does anyone else suffer this problem with Yahoo?

Someone had a screenshot saved of a Y! search in another thread that showed a new Y! layout.

One of the changes in it was that Y! went to 4 up 2 down on the Overture listings.
