Yahoo! Using Google AdSense for Promotional Purposes

May 17, 2006 • 8:28 am | comments (1) by | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine & Yahoo SEO

We scold for not using PPC to promote their brand but we most praise Yahoo! for using Google AdSense for promoting their brand.

A WebmasterWorld thread notes that Yahoo! is using Google's contextual ad program, Google AdSense, to promote its own product. It is important to note, that Yahoo! may not be directly advertising in the Google AdWords program. It may be a Yahoo! affiliate who is doing the leg work here. If that is the case, and it probably is, then I will take away my praise from Yahoo! Nah, I am just kidding. Yahoo! has an affiliate program, that deserves some praise also.

It is also important to note that although I scolded for not using PPC to promote their search engine, sem4u posted that he did see ads in the Google AdSense program as well. So there you go.
