Make Money From Articles Part -1

Writing articles is one of the easiest and most effective ways of generating free traffic to your website and getting free
advertising.So without further ado, let’s get into it and learn all about using articles to generate free traffic...
Now let’s get down the root of your article. In this parts, this is what we are going to cover:

1) Determine the purpose of your article

2) Creating a compelling article heading

3) How to make your article interesting enough so they click on your resource link

4) How to write your article quickly and make it a viral marketing machine

5) How to spit and polish your article so it looks like you're a professional writer

Ok, so let's determine the purpose of our article.This might sound stupid, but if you don't know what you want your readers to do when they finish reading your article, how will they know what to do?Before I get too far into writing this, there s one thing you must do before you put pen to paper so to speak.

FORGET EVERYTHING YOU LEARN ABOUT WRITING IN SCHOOL!

It doesn't apply to article writing on the Internet. The purpose of writing articles is to get a response and that sometimes means using unconventional methods of writing. If you can't handle that your writing my look like it was written in the dark in some sports (maybe a bit harsh) and you're neurotic about it, forget writing on the Internet altogether.

This is meatball writing. We get straight to the point and give the readers all the information in less then 700 words.
Now back to determining the purpose of our article.
Here are the usual options that the reader has.

1) Visit your website link in the resource box

This is probably the most common response people seem to go to, even if it is the wrong one.People are so fixated with wanting their readers to go to their websites and buy straight away.Tell me something, how many strangers on the Internet have you brought something from because they just told you a great story?
None right?

If you were selling them something, the best bet would be to send them straight to your newsletter signup link in your resource box,or even better yet, a free 5 day course via email, which I will talk about in a minute.
But if you are sure you want to send them to your website, the best way to do that is to tell your readers (in your article) that if you go to your website (in your resource box), there is a free gift (of value) they can get, just by visiting your site.(i'm planing to do this also,first i will write more make money online articles)
Make sure if you do this, it's not a blatant plug for a product and the gift is of real value, or very few publishers will publish your article, and fewer readers will respond to you in the future. No one likes being sold straight off the bat, and by giving them a free gift, or getting them to give you their email address some way is the best way to go.

2) Visit an affiliate link

This one is quite tricky. For starters, some publishers don't allow you to put affiliate program links in your article at all, and if you do, they have to be completely in context and it must be one brilliant article, but that's not a problem.You can of course put an affiliate link in your resource box, which would be allowed straight away.However, if you want your affiliate links in your article here are a few tips.

1) Make sure they add value to your article and are not just blatant plugs.

2) Make sure your article is informative and to the point

3) Give plenty of free information away at your website and or offer a free course

4) Write a brilliant article!

3) Subscribe to your mailing list.This is one of the better options? Why, because when they sign up for your mailing list, they are giving you permission to contact them via email on a regular basis. It would be very hard in your article to
announce your mailing list in context of the article, as it would come off as a blatant plug, so the best bet would be to include your subscribe email address in your resource box.

Don't make them go to a website and subscribe, this will cut your lead percentagenearly in half. All your readers should have to do is send a blank email to you autoresponder/mailing list email address and subscribe from there.

4) Subscribe to your free course

This is my favorite way to really maximize your articles. Why? Here's why!

1) They give you their email address just like they are joining your newsletter

2) They are in the buying mood straight away

3) You get to give them a sales message at the end of your free 5-day course and it won't look like a blatant plug

4) You can offer them more free courses for years to come

5) Just do it!

With a free 5-day course, you are really getting to know your readers better and you are giving them the chance to read more information from you straight away.

A free course is just really 5 or so articles put together with an autoresponder and sent out over a period of days.

Just like with the mailing list, put your free course link (not a website address) in your resource box.

5) Refer your article to others

If you want your readers to refer your articles to other people, here is what you do.(This is a good idea if you have affiliate links in your article) .You send them to a website, with a refer afriend script. This website also has your previous articles on there as well in an easy to use site.You don't need fancy graphics or flash animation, just make it easy to navigate. As I was saying, send them to a page with a refer a friend script on it, and once they do that, give them a free bonus, like the chance to sign up for a free 5 day course you are offering!
You see how many possibilities there are. By giving them something in return with value, like a free 5-day course, you get them to refer your article/website to their friends.

6) Contact you personally

If you want people to contact you personally, don't make them dig through a website to find your contact details. At the very least, put your email address in your resource box, if not your business phone number.

7) Do nothing

Don't be disheartened if a lot of people don't visit your website or take an action from your article, they could just be freebie seekers looking for free information and are not willing to take an action no matter how good your information is or would be.
The secret to article writing is volume.The more articles you have out there being passed around, the more traffic you will end up getting.

8) Flame you

There are some idiots, and yes they are idiots, who would rather send nasty emails to you instead of giving constructive criticism.

If you are one of these people, find a better hobby, because it can really hurt a person’s feelings. When I was first starting out, and I got some flames, they really hit me hard, but then I realized I was the one making money on the Internet and they were probably spending all day abusing people over the internet....more to come stay tuned

Get Indexed Fast

..Don’t count on it. You need to go out and get the traffic.First create a few interesting posts on your blog about your favorite topic. We want enough to capture the interest of your fellow readers, after all.Once your blog is ready for the world, take heart, it should get indexed by Google fairly quickly. But we still need more than that. Go to www.dmoz.org and find a category that fits your blog. Once you have found that category, add your blog to the listings. This is sort of like a Dewey Decimal System for websites.(it is hard to get in dmoz,but you can try,and put your descriptions with sense) You want to be listed in the directory in order to get some traffic. This will take a week or two at least so be patient. You will be listed their eventually.

Next, head on over to Google Webmaster Tools. Sign in with the AdSense account if you have it,(or you can use different e-mail) then ADD your website to Google’s listings. This will help you get indexed a little more quickly by Google. From here, we will head on over to Yahoo! and submit your site there as well. This will help you get indexed by Yahoo! a bit more quickly.
You guessed it. Then we head over to MSN Live Search and submit our new blog there as well.

We will also head to Webring. Join Webring and add your new blog to a ring for added traffic. This is an oftenoverlooked area of traffic building that has worked very well for me lately.

Lastly, we will use the Quick Indexing Tool. Now this is one POWERFUL tool. I have seen sites and blogs get indexed within 24 hours using this tool. Fill in the info, submit, and wait to be indexed.

There are many other methods you can use to drive trafficto your site. One of my favorite methods is to find forums related to your topic. Here is another "top secret nugget". Go to www.bigboards.com. These are the most populated boards and forums on the net. Find one related to your topic, join the forum, and then edit your profile in that forum. There is usually an option to create a ‘signature’ that will go at the end of all of your posts. You want to put a link to YOUR blog in that signature. There are people making tons of money on the internet doing nothing but marketing themselves in forums.

Of course, you are not DIRECTLY marketing your site. You are just participating in the conversation. Your SIGNATURE is doing all of the work for you. OK, one last thing. Each time you make a new post to your blog, head over to www.autopinger.com and ‘ping’ your blog. This basically lets the search engine spiders know that
something new has been posted and that they should come over and visit your site.

This is another very important step…not to be overlooked. Now, in order to see how much traffic you’re getting, you will need a stat counter. Head over to www.sitemeter.com and create an account. In the “Manager” section, create your counter and copy the code, just like before. Then head back to your Blogger layout and add another template item. I usually stick my meter down at the bottom of the page where it’s out of the way but still does its job. You can then log into Sitemeter every day and check your stats!
Now in order to index your blog fast i advise you to read my post's about Search Engine Optimization

What is Moneybookers


Moneybookers is a tool that allows you to safely send and receive money via email - instantly. You can send money from your credit/debit card, transfer money to and from your bank account. Use Moneybookers whenever you need to send money to someone (settle a debt with a friend, pay for online purchase/auctions...) or when someone needs to send money to you.


How It Works

INSTANT PAYMENTS WITH MONEYBOOKERS

Send Money Transactions

You can send money worldwide to anyone with an email address – even if the recipient does not have a Moneybookers account yet. When you make payments from one account to another, the transaction will process instantly and will be viewable in your Moneybookers account history.

Uploading funds to your Moneybookers account

Moneybookers aims to provide as many instant upload options as possible. In the upload funds section of your Moneybookers account, the processing time for each option is clearly shown. Once registered with Moneybookers, all you need is your email address and password to make payments.

Payments to online shops

Moneybookers customers can make instant payments to more than 3,500 online shops worldwide that accept Moneybookers as a payment option. All you have to do is complete the following steps:

  • Choose Moneybookers on the checkout page of the shop
  • Once loaded, the payment gateway will prompt you to login into your Moneybookers account by entering your email address and password
  • Choose your preferred method of payment and confirm the transaction
Upon completion, you will be returned to the shops’ website and Moneybookers will instantly inform the shop of the transaction. All you have to do then is wait for your goods or services!


How to make money with Moneybookers

For what do they pay you? New customers referred by you
  • Option 1: Check the referral check box every time you send a payment. When the recipient signs up to claim the payment, you will automatically be marked as his referrer!
  • Option 2: Get your referral link and put it in your email signature, on your web site, or just send it to friends. If a person clicks on your link and joins Moneybookers, you are automatically marked as his referrer!
  • Option 3: If your friend did not use your referral link, you can still be marked as his referrer after registration when he enters your referral ID by clicking on the 'Who referred you?' link below. This option will only be available within 14 days after registration.
How much do they pay you? 30% of their fee income

All future 'Send money' fees of your progenies, including fees earned from payments made to merchants, qualify.
Your revenue share will be credited to your Moneybookers account in a daily batch payment.

Business/private users: Send your daily payments with Moneybookers - and earn money instead of paying it to your bank.
Online shops: A double advantage: accept Moneybookers and at the same time earn money by referring users to us via your referral link.
Webmasters: Turn your traffic into cash - just for putting a Moneybookers link/banner on your website!




Now why choose Moneybookers over the PayPal

It is a simple answer,Moneybooker support payments (send and RECEIVE) in all of the countries,paypal dont,just enlarge this picture below.














It is time to try Moneybookers and make money with their refferal program.

Search Engine Optimization Basics-Part 5 FINAL

How do Backlinks Help with SEO

A backlink is a link which directs others towards your site; they are also often referred to as inbound links (IBL’s). So, the number of backlinks that your site has is an indication of how popular or important it is according to your peers (other site owners). These are especially important for SEO, as search engines such as Google will give more credit to those sites with a good number of quality backlinks. So they will then consider these sites more relevant than
others in the results pages of a search query.

Most search engines will want websites to have a level playing field, and so will more often than not look for natural links that have been built slowly over time. Although it can be fairly easy to manipulate the links on a web page in order to achieve a higher ranking, it is a lot harder to influence a search engine with external backlinks from another site. This is why these feature so highly in a search engine’s algorithm. Today it has gotten even harder to achieve these inbound links because of unscrupulous webmasters. Such people try to achieve these links by deceptive or sneaky techniques (through either hidden links or through automatically generated pages). Such pages are known as link farms and they are generally disregarded by search engines. But if you are linked to such a link farm, then you may find your site being banned entirely from these search engines. Another way of achieving quality backlinks to a site is to entice quality visitors to
come to yours.

There are a number of ways in which back linking can be achieved.

1. Reciprocal Linking - this is where you link to another site that provides the same service or product as you and they in turn have a link to your site on theirs.

2. Site Submissions. Submit links for your site to directories which allow free submissions, or if you can afford it, some paid directories. There are many sites around which offer a service where you can submit your site details to numerous sites. Plus, if you want, you can always create your own directory of similar websites.

3. Articles. This is another way of getting great backlinks. So if you have a reputable looking site that contains informative, well written reviews, then there is a good chance that your articles will receive high search engine rankings also. But it is vital that any articles you write are on the subject, informative and thorough in relation to your site. Also you could always write a few articles for submission to article sites such as EzineArticles.com or SearchWarp.com. This is another great way of getting even more backlinks to your site. Below are a few tips you will need to consider in order to write good articles for your site.

a. Write in a way that your intended target audience will understand what you are trying to say. In other words, don’t write it like you were a teacher talking to a class of 10 year olds, but don’t beoverly complicated.

b. Watch your spelling, grammar and punctuation. If in doubt, then use your spell checker.(but i dont' use this ,i think that you noticed that ;) )

c. Do not make your article too long. Usually a good article will consist of between 350 to 500 words.

d. Always include a resource box at the end, as this will include that all important backlink to your site. This resource box should also include a short biography regarding you and your site.

4. Blogging. This has now become an integral part of the internet, and is one of the most effective ways of linking. You either have the choice of placing a few words of comments on to someone else’s blog, or you may want to link to them from your own blog. In fact, you will find that most
blogs will be happy to link back to you. However, it is important that you try to update your blog regularly and post interesting content to ensure that people will want to link back to you.



Conclusion

As you will soon see, search engines are one of the primary ways in which internet users will find a particular website. So that is why a site with good search engine listings is likely to see a dramatic increase in the traffic that it receives.

Although everybody wants good listings, there are unfortunately many sites which appear poorly or not at all in search engine rankings. This is because they have failed to consider just exactly how a search engine works. In particular, they forget that submitting to search engines is only part of the equation when you are trying to get a good search engine ranking for your site.
So therefore, it is important that you prepare your site through search engine optimization.
This ensures that the pages of your site are accessible to search engines and are focused in such a way that they will help improve the chances of them being found by the search engine spiders.

This is my last post of Search Engine Optimization Basics i will compile all 5 posts in to one PDF file and offer it for free download...stay tuned.

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Yahoo's board of directors on Monday rejected Microsoft's buyout offer, saying the 44.6-billion-dollar bid is too low and not in the interest of shareholders of the veteran Internet company.

"After careful evaluation, the board believes that Microsoft's proposal substantially undervalues Yahoo including our global brand, large worldwide audience, significant recent investments in advertising platforms and future growth prospects, free cash flow and earnings potential, as well as our substantial unconsolidated investments," Yahoo said in a statement.

As a result, the board "concluded that the proposal is not in the best interests of Yahoo and our stockholders."

Microsoft told AFP on Monday it "has no comment at this time."

On February 1, Microsoft unveiled what it called "a generous" offer to take over Yahoo, in an effort to merge the world's biggest software company with a major Internet player to take on search and advertising juggernaut Google.

Microsoft proposed 31 dollars per share, a 62 percent premium above Yahoo's closing price a day earlier.

Yahoo's share price climbed in the wake of the offer, and on Monday was up 1.48 percent at 29.63 dollars around 1755 GMT.

Wording of the rejection by Yahoo suggests that the company is holding out for a better price, and guarding against potential lawsuits from stockholders, according to analysts.

"Right now they are haggling," Silicon Valley analyst Rob Enderle told AFP. "Yahoo is not saying no at any price. They are saying the Microsoft offer is not strong enough."

It is common for companies to rebuff initial buyout offers and hold out for sweeter deals.

"Microsoft can now up the bid, or they can move to replace the board," Enderle said.

A hostile bid by Microsoft to take over Yahoo would involve the US software giant making offers directly to stockholders and maneuvering to replace Yahoo's board members at an upcoming March election.

Analysts at RBC Capital Markets said the rejection of the Microsoft bid signals that there is no sign of interest from competing bidders and that negotiations have entered a "counteroffer stage."

Yahoo is said to believe the California company is worth closer to 40 dollars per share, a price that would bump up the cost to Microsoft by billions of dollars.

Microsoft, based in the northwest US state of Washington, says it is prepared to tap into financial markets and leverage a buyout for the first time since it was founded in 1975.

Microsoft believes a combination of the companies would lead to cost savings of a billion dollars per year.

But Yahoo chief executive Jerry Yang sent a message to employees last week, assuring them the firm's leaders were exploring ways to avoid a Microsoft takeover.

"Our board is thoughtfully evaluating a wide range of potential strategic alternatives in what is a complex and evolving landscape," Yang wrote in the email.

Google meanwhile has condemned Microsoft's effort as an attack on the independence of the Internet.

"Microsoft's hostile bid for Yahoo raises troubling questions," Google's chief legal officer David Drummond said in a written statement.

"This is about more than simply a financial transaction, one company taking over another. It's about preserving the underlying principles of the Internet: openness and innovation."

Analysts say the goal of the takeover is to better compete with Google, whose dominance of Internet advertising, backed by its powerful search engine technology, has come at the expense of Microsoft and Yahoo.

Microsoft, they say, hopes that by taking over Yahoo it will expand its own presence in online advertising and, using Yahoo's popularity and technology, ratchet up its own competitiveness overall in Internet services.

Reports surfaced Monday that options being considerd by Yahoo include merging with faded Internet star America Online (AOL), now owned by Time Warner.

Yahoo could also outsource online advertising to Google, a proven master of that business.

What Is Stats Junky..

Automatically check and compare your
stats every 15 minutes for every
affiliate program you use!



Here’s how it works:

Lets say you check your affiliate stats at CJ, Clickbank, Adsense, Adwords, Amazon, Azoogle, Bidvertiser, ROIRocket, etc..etc..etc. It will check all of those programs for you at your preset interval and alert you whenever you make a sale.

Most affiliate programs have different display periods for their stats. Daily, weekly, bi monthly, etc. That makes it very hard to compare them apples to apples. Stats Junky allows you to see them all on the same time frame that you select.

Now you can finally compare multiple affiliate programs apples to apples.

You won't have to manually log in to each of these sites and try to manually record how much you made for this campaign or that campaign, or how much this week compared to last week.

By the time you've logged into the second or third affiliate program, the first one is just haze. Not any more!

If you wanted to login directly to any of your affiliate programs to setup new campaigns you can simply click on it's name in Stats Junky and it will open that affiliate program in your browser with you already logged in and looking at your stats!

Every couple of days we update Stats Junky with the newly requested programs and update any existing ones that changed their format. This means you’ll never have to manually login to check stats for any program ever again. If there's a website that you check the stats on, Stats Junky can do it for you!


~~ Beta Testers Wanted ~~

Stats Junky is an insane tool that will revolutionize how you monitor your income, and we need more beta testers. The beta testers that help us grow, will get the app free, (a $30 a month normal charge will be free for those people that helped us grow the list of affiliate programs during the beta test).

Become a beta tester, and they will give you this software free for life.


This is a Limited-Time offer. After the beta testing is completed, Stats Junky will cost $30/month.


"Here Is The free link for your software,but if you give a free beta test run..and my post is free then ;) "

Effective Use of Keywords for SEO


What you should remember is that Search Engine Optimization does not need to be complicated. What you should do is make sure that each and every page of your site is a unique entity, and needs to be treated in the appropriate manner where SEO is concerned. Below i will provide you with some guidelines which should help you achieve your desired SEO results.

Get the Keywords Right

It is important that you make sure the selected words you use meet your marketing criteria. So do not pick words which are too general. Using words that are more specific will result in a higher ranking for your site. Also, it is important that you choose words which are suitable to your site. For example, you will find that “optimizing search engines” and “search engine optimization
have completely different rankings.

Include keywords in your Page Titles

Unfortunately, a lot of people will use either inappropriate names or their company name in the page’s titles. So it is important that you include the appropriate keywords in your title, as that is they way people carry out searches on the internet.

Inclusion of keywords in your Title Tags and Meta Tags

It is vital that, for each page of your site, you include the appropriate keywords within all the page’s tags. Also, take time to go over the Meta description that you use. You should make sure that any description you use is alluring and interesting to those who are visiting your site, and include keywords within it wherever possible. There are many search engines around today which use the Meta description as the thing that will be displayed in their search results.

Keywords in Content

It is important that you make sure you include keywords in the content of your site as well. But do not over do this, as too many will result in your page being discounted by the search engines.
Using these basic guidelines in relation to keywords in relation to search engine optimization and you will find that your site can not help but be affected in a positive way.


How to Determine the Keyword

Selection for Your Site

Making a website attractive to search engines is a key factor for its success.One of the key ways in which to rank well with search engines is by optimizing the visible keywords on the pages. But in order to be successful in your keyword strategy campaign, you should use the following two steps.

Keyword Selection

You will need to determine what your pages are offering and also determine which words that your potential visitors might use in order to search for the pages of your site. You then need to create keywords which are based on those words.
(example: make money online )

For the full optimization of keywords on your site you should use between 3 to 5 keywords on the appropriate pages. It is vital that you start using them from the top left and then down. Many times you will find that this will be the first 200 words on each page of your site which will include the title tag, headings,abstract etc.

So the closer to the top left of your page the keywords are placed then the more weight they will be given by Google. Often, visitors will view your site in the same way that the search engine spider’s do, so emphasizing your keywords from the top left and down is a good way to design a site.However, if your pages are already built, you may be thinking it is too late to select your keywords. But it’s not. It does not matter if you choose your keywords before or after the site has gone live (although it is better to do it before, as then you will not need to rewrite the text on the pages). But if it is live, then you may have the keywords, but they may not be the right ones. Yet they could be and you have not fully utilized their optimization value.

So, if you wish, by using a thorough keyword selection process, you can make sure that they keywords you are using are optimized to their fullest extent. Also, another issue where keyword selection is concerned is you need to determine whether the keyword is too popular or competitive. So if you find sites that are already competing for high rankings using particular keywords, then you may need to select more specific keywords instead. This can also be said for keywords which have several different meanings as well.

Therefore it is important that you look how users will search for your pages, and which specific questions the content of your pages actually answers. So whenever possible, refine the keywords that you use in order to answer these questions. But whenever you are refining your keywords, it is important that you keep in mind that a large portion of searches carried out on the net contain three words or more. So when people are searching for answers on the internet, they will often phrase their search term as a question. Therefore many people will not use search words that describe the solution to a question. So in order to optimize your pages to their full extent, it is best if you think like the person who is searching.

Check out the Competition

This is a great way of getting ideas, and you do this by carrying out a search using keywords that you already know, and that you would like to target. Then click through the top sites that come up as a result of this search. Then once on the site, view their source HTML code and view the keywords that they have in their Meta tags. But it is important that you remember to use those keywords which relate to your site or page. It is easy to view a sites HTML code, all you
do is click on the “View” button at the top of your web browser page and then select
“Source” or “Page Source”.

By developing a list of keyword phrases, you should be able to optimize each
page of your site for the search engines.


What is Search Engine Friendly

Content

Although you may think it is about stuffing your website with target keywords, it isn’t. In fact, you may find that you could fall foul of the search if you do this. What you need to remember is that you need to write copy that not only spiders will look at, but also human beings will as well. What is the point of having a site that is highly ranked, yet none of your visitors can understand? So it is vital that your site is user friendly to both your visitors, as well as search engine
spiders.

First of all you need to answer the following questions:-

1. What is your site for?
2. What does it do?
3. What do you want your visitors to do when they reach it?
4. Would you like them to spend money when they get to it?
5. Or are you just providing them with information?

So you need to remember these, as they will have an impact on the copy that you write for the content of your site. So whenever possible, use short paragraphs or bullet points, as these are more likely to attract visitors, while more lengthy essays will only drive them away. But if you are selling a service or product then you need to make your site look interesting. Provide as many calls to action as you can, and not just provide them with an online price list. So remember that you are trying to attract the search engines, but your site should be designed first and foremost for human readers.

As long as a site has been designed well with people in mind, then 9 times out of 10 you will find that it is search engine friendly also. Just like a visitor to your site reads the copy on your page in order to figure out what you have to offer, so does a search engine. So when a search engine is
looking at your page, they are looking for keyword phrases in your copy(Content).

Below are provided a number of tips which should help in your SEO using the
content on your site.

1. You should have at least 200 words of copy on each page of your site.Although this may be difficult at times, search engines really like it, so it is important that you increase the amount of copy where you are able to.Generally speaking, once you surpass 1,000 words, the search engines will pretty much stop looking…so no need to get too long, unless the desired action you want from the visitor requires it. This text, wherever possible, should include your most important keyword phrases, but should still remain logical and easy to read by visitors to the site.

2. Ensure that you use the phrases which you have used in the other tags on the pages during this part of the optimization process.

3. Add additional copy filled pages to the site, such as how to articles, tips or tutorials. Not only do these types of pages help with SEO, but you may find that other sites will link to yours. These tips should not be ignored, as optimizing your page copy (content) is one of the most important things you could possibly do in order to improve your rankings in the Search Engines.

Microsoft Buying Yahoo and offers $44.6 BILLION

Microsoft and Yahoo in recent months discussed a possible merger of the two companies or some kind of match-up that would pair their respective strengths, say people familiar with the situation. But the merger discussions are no longer active, these people say. The two companies may still explore other ways of cooperating.


Nothing like a bit of rumor and speculation to kick-off a Friday. The New York Post is reporting that Microsoft is tired of losing out to Google and is trying to re-start acquisition talks with Yahoo.

The new approach follows an offer Microsoft made to acquire Yahoo! a few months ago, sources said. But Yahoo! spurned the advances of the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant. Wall Street sources put a roughly $50 billion price tag on Yahoo!.

It makes sense on a number of levels. Microsoft and Yahoo combined, might have a chance of actually competing with Google as they would hold a combined search advertising market-share of 27%. That’s still a long way from Google’s 65% share, but it’s a whole lot better than they have now.

Microsoft would certainly benefit from placing all of its online advertising efforts under the Yahoo brand, while Yahoo could help bring it’s younger audience to MSFTs other products such as the Xbox and Office.
