Ask.com launches adsense competitor

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by netpox, Apr 25, 2007.

    Ask.com is going to launch a contextual advertising product just like Adsense. The company hopes to win over publishers by attacking one of AdSence’s biggest weaknesses - transparency. Ask’s contextual product will be available on May 21st for publishers to sign up.

    I wonder what their payouts will be. I dont think it would be better then adsense...anyways here is the article: http://www.netpox.com/?p=70

    I am going to sign up and see how it works.

    Wow, I am honestly in shock! This is a long waited and NEEDED competitor.

    Hopefully they have a better protection system set up for their publishers, I am definitely signing up!

    Wow, Ask.com? Surprising! Sounds like YPN is getting screwed even more.

    I am signing up and putting them up on some sites that I didn't want Adsense on (Proxies Anyone? :D)

    Great news - I've always liked Ask and it's good to see them pushing into this market. Yahoo seems unbelievably sluggish and annoying about getting YPN out of beta, like they are with everything else. Now...any guesses when we'll be hearing from MSN?

    Great news, google really need some serious competitors, when they begin to lose their publishers at least they will stop banning people for no reasons.

    I'd like to see some confirmation, especially when they can't even spell Adsense consistently! (AdSence)

    We are editing at the same time! :) I was about to edit and post that URL as it wasn't in your original post but by the time I hit quote, you had changed it.

    Iv emailed Ask.com (don't know if/when I will hearing anything back)

    But I basically asked them to confirm the posts being made on several blogs across the web (gave them a couple of links as well)

    I will post back when I get their answer :D
