MSN Dumps Yahoo, Google changes and Advertising

MSN dumps Yahoo! In favour of search beta

Microsoft's search results are now being provided by MSN Search (beta) rather than Yahoo!
After AOL moves away from Google to Fast (Yahoo!) now MSN moves from Yahoo to itself. We will be looking closely to see if Inktomi or Overture results (both Yahoo!) are contained with in the results.


Google raises search word limit

Google has reportedly increased the maximum number of terms allowed in a search query to 32
- and that can't be a bad thing.


French court rules against Google in keyword case

A French court has ruled that Google must stop using the trademarks of Le Meridian Hotels and Resorts to trigger keyword ads.
This is a good thing.


Search users confused by paid listings

One in six internet search engines users are still unable to tell the difference between unbiased search results and paid advertisements.
Doh!
