I just noticed ( while looking for my site ) that the ads that I have put on yahoo network are indexed as content .

I have been advertising on YahooSM for a new portal and when i was looking for it ( by sitename in search ) in google, I coudl see many yaho network pages. On visiting them I noticed that they carried my Yahoo ads.

I think this could be a glitch with either yahoo system to implement ads or with google's spidering and indexing.

Anyone else has expereinced this?

Not really - They are not showing for the link:mydomain.com search on google. So it is not showing as organic link ( as per now )

But when searched on google , by my company name, ( which is a part of domain ) or by domain name, the results show about 30+ pages from yahoo network that had featured my advert. ( They are from yahoo network of sites - like yahoo jobs etc and not yahoo site directly )

Now, if i stop my advert on yahoo, I do not get any real value fom this google indexing, because my ads will not be there on those pages. So presently i am keeping my ads there. and watch this.

Any views on this?

Related:

I am seeing Google's "network sites" adwords links showing up as backlinks using the yahoo linksite operator.

The two biggest online advertising companies are actively capturing, storing, and delivering the others ads in one form or another.

Very interesting indeed.

*..your yahoo paid text ads are showing up as links in google organic results.*

I've seen them turn up in "contains the term" results but never in the links results...
