Overture continues to raise the stakes
Overture have won another major distribution partner over Google.
'Overture.., will be the exclusive provider of algorithmic and commercial search listings on Knight Ridder Digital's network of newspaper sites, including the San Jose Mercury News and Miami Herald. Also, Knight Ridder Digital will be a test ground for new content-targeted advertising from Overture' (emphasis added).
The key term is obviously the 'algorithmic' search here with Overture starting to make full use of the purchasing of Fast's Web Search Unit earlier in the year.

'Meisel [Overture CEO] said the increase in paid clicks and PPC were a result of improvements to its Match Driver product and other technologies, and noted an absence of a seasonal dropoff.'

For any regular readers of nzbase.com you will have noticed a bit of a hiatus in regular news updates lately. Well, in the spirit of migrating to warmer climates (albeit for short periods of time) the editor has decided to head off to Fiji for a week or two. Back soon..
