Is this new, or have I just been missing it? Maybe it's because I don't usually maximize my browser.
Which brings up something I really hate about Yahoo. It sucks that I can't see the overture listings on the right unless I totally maximize my browser screen.
Now it seems they are using that space to promote Yahoo's different services, including shopping, stores, tickets, and others.
I'm no sure when this change took place.
I can't be the only one seeing the 7-11 overture results on the right side of Yahoo. Anyone else?
So, I have to figure out why they are showing up on my home computer.
When I get back home tomorrow night, I will do a screen capture. Doesn't anyone else see them? They look just like google adwords, but are shaded yellow and are Overture results.
I just got back home tonight and went on my home computer to do some screen shots, but they are not showing now. I am so happy someone got the screen shots! I was beginning to think everyone thought I was crazy.
These are the same ones I was seeing. They lasted several days for me, and were first shaded blue and later changed to yellow. I am in Washington State, USA.
Thanks again JOSK.
Jon , Look carefully at the screen shot [188.8.131.52...] for the "Harry Poter" Search ...Then search for it in yahoo and PT's pure inktomi search ...you can see the screen shot is closer to the later . ( for example the #1 in the screen shot listing shows meta description of that site as snippet which is the same in PT search )
Yahoo has invented the perfect Search monetizing strategy... PPC in top , side , bottom and PFI listings in between ...
I believe Yahoo has selected a dangerous route for short term profits . Lets pity the poor joe surfer :)
