    Interesting read. What's more interesting is these major companies have to ban together just to keep up with google

    First it was Yahoo to join with MSN... now Yahoo with ebay. Google already sucks now with the Big Daddy update, also the click rates from AdSense are not as high as they were previously. This is the right time for Yahoo to hit the nail!!!

    Yes It was the best program, Google was the best search engine. It will fade away slowly, if it continues to do what it is doing to all of us, all webmasters are suffering from this. Less Impressions, Low CTR is a daily rutine now, those days gone when I use to make a handsome figure at the end of the day with adsense.

    Ebay went bust in Japan & Paypal is a concept that is Japanese compatible but NOT actually in Japanese. In otherwords people even in online marketing don't know what paypal is.

    Yahoo Japan has the strongest presence in Japan if eBay launches a Japanese interface or even Japanese support of Paypal they stand to make a killing...

    If you say it will fade away, how come everybody unites against them?
    It doesnt make sense...

    It all depends if YPN continues to pay high to their publishers.

    I thought it was just me... are everyone else's CTRs lower now?

    Ive seen a definate 0.5-1% drop recently (which is a lot of money)

    Why is Yahoo a fix for this though?

    Not sure but on basis of experience people have got from Yahoo it seems that Yahoo's rates for clicks are more.

    that's surprising, I'm actually getting higher CTRs now than before, is this because there are more sites signed up on adsense now?

    Good news. Though I like cashing my extremely high yahoo checks in front of hot bank tellers. :) Paypal would take away that pleasure :(

    I think the point Imran is making is that, as Google's competition increases, they will lose more and more market share to other companies who are either providing a superior product or making it easier for their customers to do business. Google is still the clear #1, and probably will be for a while - which is why other companies are uniting against them. ;)

    Exactly and with recent problems with the top search engine of the world, webmasters like me are facing lots of problems!
