I'm not seeing sponsored listings on MSN today. Anyone know why?

MSN has indeed effectively dropped Overture/Yahoo listings as they roll out their own PPC system called MSN AdCenter.

As MSN's PPC is still in beta, for the next few months the distribution on MSN is going to be 25% from MSN and 75% from Overture.

I was told the same thing eWhisper, but I'm not seeing it. What sectors are you still seeing Yahoo ads in?

I'm seeing it in quite a few different sectors. Just did some searches in several sectors where I know we're running MSN ads, and MSN ads were showing occasionally, and Overture the rest of the time

MSN will slowly drop Yahoo. My understanding from their sale is that they will wean themselves of Yahoo by Mid next year.

I was told yesterday their contract runs out with MSN summer of 06.
