Bing has confirmed that it's now driving search and ads for AOL properties Worldwide. Whilst AOL was not a big player in search, some of its properties could be helpful from an advertising point of view.

as of Jan. 1, Bing powers AOLís web, mobile, and tablet search, providing paid search ads and algorithmic organic search results to AOLís properties worldwide. All major Bing Ads ad products are enabled for AOL search traffic worldwide to provide marketers with additional high-quality volume and ways to reach their desired audience.

Does that mean that AdWords no longer shows on aol.com searches?

It does.

StartPage.com seems to do the trick as an alternative to AOL Search for Google-powered, unlocalized, unpersonalized search results.

StartPage offers anonymous proxy to visit each web page, often used for malicious purpose. I block it.

Should've added perhaps that I only use(d) AOL, and now StartPage, to gauge my rankings :-)

And I should probably have specified that I block their anonymous proxy and not the authentic traffic that this SERP may send. However the fact they offer the proxy beneath every listing really annoys me.

AOL and Bing try to be a competition to Google?
I do not think they will succeed
