Google.com, on the other hand, is strictly an SE. To use other Google services requires that you navigate to otherentry point which are not directly accessible from the SE page.
MSN and Yahoo are both still running separate crawlers, even though Microsoft is now driving the SERPs for both Bing and Yahoo. Not sure what's happening behind the scenes with that.
And, Yahoo's Panama PPC platform has been phased out, with Panama accounts having been migrated to Microsoft's adCenter platform.
I have an old forum with 20 000 members and a newer where the members increase very fast. Unfortunately I have not had time so long to integrate Ad solutions in the forum software. I hope to change that soon.
Do you or anyone else think Microsoft's adCenter platform is a competitive alternative to AdSense?

In my personal experience, while Google provides the greater volume of Conversions, MS yields the lower Cost-per-Conversion. How that will play out now that Yahoo's PPC program has been subsumed by MS I'll not know for another 5-6 months.
