    5 more moths of limited competition. Time to ramp up those campaigns if you're in the pilot!

    I was under the assumption that MSN has their PPC system in beta already (for advertisiers not publishers yet). An MSN rep contacted me and offered me $100 in free credits to join the beta. I just haven't gotten around to it, mainly because my AdWords and Yahoo/Overture PPC have done so poorly for the money invested...

    It is. I put together a little AdCenter FAQ earlier this week that answers some of the common questions that I've seen people ask about AdCenter.

    If you can get in the pilot do it. There's hardly any competition right now and CTR and conversions have been great for everyone I've talked to.

    OK - I'm confused. I know the MSN equivelent of Adwords has been available for some time ... so are these folks paying JUST to be seen on the side of the search results - or is there a stealth Beta program for the MSN equivilent of Adsense?

    Yes.

    From here:
    If there is a "content network" type test going I haven't seen anything on it. All the impressions/clicks I've received through AdCenter have been from MSN search results. Tha said though, I don't think we're that far off from seeing a Adsense competitor from Microsoft. They have indicated they will be serving their own AdCenter ads 100% of the time on MS search results by the end of June 2006.

    The question is do they start beta testing an Adsense like product before they get to that point, or, does the Adsense like product start testing after they are serving 100% of their own ads on the MS search results.

    Time will tell:D

    I hope they don't change their algorithm, I rank good with them now.
