    Unless there has been a change recently, the highest bids take the highest positions - CTR is ignored by Yahoo.

    CTR has always been ignored by yahoo, but i have heard from reliable sources that soon this is going to change. They might also work on google's way of higher CTR, lesser the CPC.

    Looks like they sneakily incorporated the CTR into yesterday. Anyone else seeing this bullshit? We really don't need Adwords #2 !!

    They are either starting to incorporate CTR, or will pretty soon. It's part of their whole interface overhaul that was supposed to happen a few months ago.

    Isn't the blue "click index" meter in YSM new? Maybe I've just never noticed it before.

    while keeping same or better CTR. This improves efficiency of PPC budget,
    Yahoo Search's CTR is 35-45% lower than Google's, so think of this stats

    That isn't a universal result. Personally, I have found YSM to have better CTR results as have some of my conacts.
