worthy read on web 2.0

Jeffrey Zeldman at A List Apart brings us a lot to think about. My fav line:

The second problem affects all who use an AJAX-powered site. If web signifiers and conventions are still in their infancy, then AJAX-related signifiers and conventions are in utero.


Yahoo's AJAX Ad Links

So ThreadWatch has a post linking to a post on Search Engine Watch about Yahoo testing Sponsored Links that show a number of topics and then display the ads on click with no refresh. It is pretty cool and you can see an example by scrolling to the Bottom of this Narnia Movie page. Also Jensense has even more details of Yahoo's interactive ad tests.


google adsense and adwords blocked on yahoo search?

So I often use a search engine to quickly look up a website rather than typing in the location. No problem, right? Well I recently took Yahoo up on their default search challenge and started using them in my FireFox search box. Funny thing is, when I did a quick search for Adsense a few days ago and clicked on the first natural result the page didn't come up.

I thought it odd at the time but over the past few days I've tried a few more times and I can't get Yahoo to redirect to Google's Adsense page. I've asked other people on other networks and they have the same problem. I've also found the same is true for Adwords searches. The problem only appears to impact Yahoo's redirection link as Google's servers are very clearly up .

What is going on? I tried a few other searches such as Maps and Talk and haven't had any problems. I also noticed that on the Adsense search Yahoo is showing a shortcut to their new Publisher Network product. Could it be that someone at Yahoo decided they don't want to provide free traffic to Google's competing advertising services and so they broke the redirection system? The end result is it makes it look like Google's servers are down.

Incidentally Google's Yahoo Search Marketing Ads on both of the searches do work when clicked. I'm sure Google is paying a pretty penny to get the top billing for those terms.

top 160 highest paying search terms

From the CyberWyre. After looking these over I finally decided it was worth it to put together a credit information blog. It isn't much yet, but I hope to put up all the odd credit or invesment information I've been collect and hopefully generate a little interest. Check out Credit Review here.
