Yahoo Delays Upgrade To Paid Search Interface

Today’s Wall Street Journal has an article titled “Yahoo Net Plummets Almost 80%; Ad-System Upgrade I Delayed.”

Terry Semel, Yahoo Chief Executive, states “Given the complexity and importance of going to market with an application of this scale, it probably requires a little more time than we originally anticipated.”

Instead of the system being ready around the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2006, it will be delayed to the 1st quarter of 2007.
