Yahoo Search Ads Get Price Change & New Report While Microsoft adCenter Gets Ad Preview

The Yahoo Search Marketing blog announced the new pricing changes are now in affect within the auction pricing model used by Yahoo Search Marketing. Overall, Yahoo said most advertisers should notice a decrease in their click spend.

Yahoo also announced a new report that shows which Yahoo partners are clicks are coming from and how well they are performing. The report is named the ad delivery report and can be used to determine which partners you should block from displaying your ads.

On the Microsoft front, adCenter has added a “Ad Preview” tool. The tool doesn’t just show you a preview of your ad, as it would appear on, but also helps reduce “unnecessary impressions and accidental clicks.”

Here is a picture of the tool:

Finally, a blog post from the Rim Kaufman group, a large PPC agency, shared that overall, his average client is seeing a 6.7% growth in August in PPC share from the major three engines. So maybe all that ‘bing’ for Bing is paying off (sorry, I had to).
