Linky Goodness, July 9
Oh my goodness, it’s Linky Goodness!
- Though we mentioned this morning that YouTube’s overhauling its advertising system, another important point in the WSJ article is that YouTube will be running both preroll and postroll ads soon.
- More on the Yahoo/Microsoft Saga. (I’m so tired of this. I’ve had to resort to creative writing at work to make myself report the news.) Today, Jerry Yang is saying that Microsoft is intentionally trying to destabilizing Yahoo, Microsoft’s refusal to negotiate is baffling, and, oh yeah, he’s not resigning.
- More not so good news for Yahoo: Microsoft adCenter begins to outpace Yahoo Search Marketing. Of course, Yahoo hasn’t occupied the high ground here . . . in a long time (if ever).
- Okay, now for good news for Yahoo: they’ve signed an agreement with Getty to license images from Flickr users. Getty will contact users they’re interested in and give them a cut of any profits.
