Yes, it really happens. Now you might find it hard to believe but you will understand after I explain.

Prior to late 2004, Google undisputedly ruledrepparttar search engine world. Duringrepparttar 137856 second half ofrepparttar 137857 year things took a dramatic turn when Yahoo and MSN decided to challengerepparttar 137858 Big G for some of their lucrative market share.

Search engines are a big source of revenue especially when it comes to advertising and for many this is their bread and butter. Withrepparttar 137859 emerging prominence of both Yahoo and MSN, advertisers have more channels through which to advertise their goods and services.

What marks Google apart from it’s two big rivals in this area isrepparttar 137860 way they display their ads. They deliver their ads through a system called Adwords which is unobtrusive to viewers. The ads are placed torepparttar 137861 right to clearly distinguish them fromrepparttar 137862 search results. Occasionally they will place ads aboverepparttar 137863 SERPS.

Overture isrepparttar 137864 company which handlesrepparttar 137865 placement of ads for both Yahoo and MSN. Now if you should search for a popular keyword in either of them, you will notice thatrepparttar 137866 ads are aboverepparttar 137867 results, to your right and atrepparttar 137868 bottom ofrepparttar 137869 page just aboverepparttar 137870 Next button. This is where it gets interesting.

Havingrepparttar 137871 privilege of working in a public computer lab, I decided to run some experiments. When customers came in and requested information on various topics I instructed them to use Yahoo or MSN for their search enquiries. The first one looked for “bridal gowns” and another looked for “tourism in Jamaica”. In both cases they click onrepparttar 137872 first available information which of course isrepparttar 137873 relevant ads displayed.
