Microsoft is planning to release the adCenter Add-in Beta for Excel "mid-winter", and those interested in the beta should pre-register. [advertising.microsoft.com]

The tool is a keyword research and optimization tool that integrates into Excel 2007, allowing you to extract keywords from any website, simply by entering the url, it allows you to understand popularity trends, in addition to demographic & geographic information.

Really looking forward to this. With YSM dropping the ball on a public keyword tool there is certainly space for a new one.

Hmmm...sounds like a forced upgrade into the new 2007 Office product line that nobody seems to like...

Looking beyond that - if M$ can tailor a few more really useful tools that you can run through office based applications - thsi coudl give both Adcenter a good kick and also people's view of M$ advertising etc.

I like it :)

And to answer your question. No and No.

1. Adcenter doesn't require Office
2. Adcenter doesn't require Windos
3. Adcenter doesn't require IE
4. Adcenter doesn't require you to use this
5. Nothing stops you or anyone else from becoming an adcenter partner to develop 3rd party interfaces for PPC management.

I've seen this in action...

IT'S VERY NICE.

I'd suggest getting on the beta asap.

I just got a long demo on the new Microsoft Keyword Research Tools at Pubcon, and it's extremely powerful.

Way to go, Microsoft. Nice job!

Does MS get enough traffic for this to be a valuable tool?

As compared to Yahoo or Google producing a tool like this how woluld one measure the results produced from the tool?

Any chance anyone could share this for the benefit of those outside the US?

Hi All

Thanks for your interest in the Add-in.

To answer some of your questions: The data we supply is from Live Search and adCenter, and is enough to provide relevant and actionable data to help your search campaigns - both paid and unpaid.

Wed certainly advocate using tools like the KW Expansion wizard for campaigns on all engines as, although the data is adCenter-centric, the results will mirror those from 3rd party PPC providers to a large extent.

As for Internationally, we do not have a timeframe yet for adding other markets, but were working on it.

Cheers

adCenterEU
