I see Google and Yahoo have their own category topic discussion areas, but where is one for MSN? Am I missing something?

Right now MSN is just Ink/Yahoo results. I imagine when they release their independent SE WebProWorld will most likely give them a forum.
I had a thought when I typed "independent". Does anyone know if MSN will continue to display Overture's ads or will they go for their own here too? I hadn't heard anything specifically about this. It seems they aren't going to want to support Y by using Ov paid listings. ...another bidding system to learn...

I think MSNn and Overture are under contract until June 2005, but I think MSN has an out clause at anytime.

Then it would make sense (but the what do I know about business descisions of this size) for MSN to keep Ov until the contract runs out. They can fine tune their organic se with the public while working on their PPC program. Then launch that when the contract runs out.
I'd like to see some innovation in their PPC scheme. The existing structure in Google and Ov isn't bad, but there's always room for improvement.

Thanks for asking! I've moved your post to our new MSN forum.
Carry on discussing...
