Microsoft has begun providing Bing search results to Yahoo as a precursor to delivering the results for all of Yahoo Search, as part of the partnership created by the pair in 2009.

Microsoft officials acknowledged the testing of "the delivery of organic results from Bing to Yahoo! Search" in a Microsoft Advertising blog post on July 20. Microsoft also is testing the delivery of paid search results from Microsoft's adCenter to Yahoo Search as part of the pilot, officials said yesterday.

The test is starting small, but "may increase to include up to 2.5% to 3.5% of live Yahoo! Search traffic in the U.S.," according to company officials.

The effect of these pilots is that some advertisers using adCenter may see increases in traffic for their search campaigns. From yesterday's Microsoft blog post:

"(W)e are not anticipating any significant changes to your expected performance, however you may see some fluctuations in volume as adCenter experiences Yahoo! traffic for the first time. Testing will continue throughout the summer and then volume will gradually increase as we transition. Since the traffic percentages are small, advertisers should not draw any conclusions from what they observe during these tests, as the results may not be indicative of the future marketplace with full Yahoo! volume."

Microsoft and Yahoo have been working with advertisers over the past couple of months to transition them from Yahoo's ad platform to adCenter.The pair are hoping and expecting to complete that transition before holiday 2010.

In July 2009, Microsoft and Yahoo announced a search partnership via which Microsoft will be providing Bing search results to Yahoo, which Yahoo will use across its search properties for 10 years. In return, Yahoo is becoming the worldwide sales force for online ads for both companies, even though. Self-serve and search advertising will be built on Microsoft’s AdCenter ad platform. Microsoft officials are counting on the search deal to boost Bing's traffic beyond the teens, in terms of search share.

ComScore released its latest U.S. search market share results a week or so ago. Both Bing and Yahoo were up slightly for the month of June, according to the comScore data, while Google was down slightly. But as comScore has noted, these numbers are suspect because of how Microsoft and Yahoo are gaming the system by integrating search and slide shows.

        @silent.griffin I'd be happy if <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com">sohbet</a> got rid of the ribbon and gave us <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com">chat</a> users the pull-down menus that existed before Office 2007 for <a href="http://www.forumuz.net/">forum</a>. I like getting Outlook for the <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com/portal/">portal</a>. It has grown on me since my new Windows <a href="http://video.trsohbet.com">izlesene</a> box had to use Outlook since <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com">chat sohbet</a> was removed. <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com">sohbet odalari</a> email client is <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com.tr">mynet sohbet</a> <a href="http://www.trsohbet.com.tr">cinsel sohbet</a> weak.

      @J hawk 336 <br><br>Thats why Zune outsells Apple... Because Billions and Billions and Billions of people agree with you... Zune IS so much better...

      The same advertisers that brought us Seinfeld (lets play footsie and wiggle our shorts Bill), Laptop Hunters (that got all sorts of bad press for lies (incorrect pricing and customer never actually went into an Apple store) and portraying windows as "cheep"), And Windows 7 was Macs idea (where a college kid who can't get laid and get kicked out of his dorm room (by his Mac roommate) has to watch TV in the hall because he doesn't even have a friend whom he could visit).

      I bet Kinect will<a href="http://www.gopsohbet.net" title="cinsel sohbet" target="_blank">cinsel sohbet</a> not be magical either.
      IE8 had multi-process architecture before Chrome launched, and in fact<a href="http://sohbettir.com" title="sohbet" target="_blank">sohbet</a> was the first browser to announce the feature. <a href="http://www.gopsohbet.net" title="gay sohbet" target="_blank">gay sohbet</a> That's why both Chrome and IE use far more memory than the other browsers.<a href="http://www.alemchat.net" title="mynet sohbet" target="_blank">mynet sohbet</a> Chrome is a bit more strict than IE, IE will allow tabs with the same integrety level to <a href="http://www.eskimynetsohbet.com" title="mynet sohbet" target="_blank">mynet sohbet</a> share a single process.<a href="http://www.eskimynetsohbet.com" title="mynet" target="_blank">mynet</a> <a href="http://www.mynetci.com" title="mynet sohbet" target="_blank">mynet sohbet</a> Outside of that MS beat Google to the punch.<a href="http://www.mynetci.com" title="mynet" target="_blank">mynet</a> Good try though.<a href="http://www.indirmedenfilmizlehd.com" title="indirmeden film izle" target="_blank">indirmeden film izle</a>If MS came out with touch UIs for at least Word, Excel,<a href="http://sohbettir.com/forum" title="forum" target="_blank">forum</a> OneNote, and Outlook, with super slick, and highly<a href="http://eglence.sohbettir.com" title="youtube" target="_blank">youtube</a> effective integrated virtual keyboards, that would be mind blowing!

    Microsoft Exchange that is past its end-of-life support date, making spam, troll-management and synchronization difficult. Company officials also are playing up the new Web-based forums??? ability to provide centralized searchable content and to highlight the contributions of designated experts.
