It required a couple of years to pass for me to get over my anger at Yahoo for totally scrambling up a 40,000 keyword account during the Panama update. But over the past year or so, Yahoo has gradually become my preferred source for PPC advertising. Now I am sorry to learn that Yahoo Search Marketing is going to be swallowed up by MSN Adcenter. Yahoo has become my preferred PPC advertising vehicle for three reasons:
1) Although it only delivers a fraction of the traffic of Google PPC, for many categories the cost per click is significantly lower and the ROI is higher;
2) The 40 character title limit allows for better copywriting opportunities than the restrictive 25 character limits of Google and Bing;
3) Yahoo tends to serve ads based on longer tail keyword terms than Google and Bing.
The consolidation won’t occur until late in the 2010 at the earliest, so I guess I can continue to appreciate the unique features of Yahoo Search Marketing for a few more months.
