Wow! What a crazy week - I am getting busier by the minute. I’m grateful to be busy serving customers, hiring new people, working on tool/software betas and more! I love this industry and I hope you enjoy this roundup:

Official Blogs

Yahoo! Search Marketing

Search Is Opening Up - I am excited to see the impact on ROI this might have with organic search…I love the yelp example in this post, very clickable.

adCenter

Boost your adCenter traffic with Microsoft Content Ads - Content ads definitely drive a little extra traffic but we are having a hard time gathering enough data via Microsoft Content Ads to determine where it is promising vs not promising…but adCenter has been reliable as far as ROI goes - albeit a very very small conversion volume compared to Yahoo! and Google.

    Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm for working in this industry. I see a lot of bitter faces commuting to work… guess they don’t work in interactive marketing.

    So what’s your take on MS Adcenter? Have you been finding a higher ROI than Yahoo and Google? Would you say this is because of a higher conversion or clickthrough rates, or mostly because of lower bids?

    Ron, thanks for stopping by!

    I am not a fan of the usability of AdCenter…but, in general, the ROI is almost always higher with AdCenter than any other platform we use.

    There is definitely a higher conversion rate in AdCenter - sometimes 20% or more than Google or Yahoo!!

    Costs per click are almost always lower with AdCenter - the problem is simply the click/impression volume. We will get 2,000 to 3,000 clicks from AdCenter but 50,000+ clicks from Google/Yahoo! for the same set of keywords.
