Yahoo! Signs A Display Ad Deal With Google

Posted Feb 6, 2013

Yahoo! has announced an advertising partnership deal with Google.  Since Yahoo! has millions of content pages that could be monetized with the help of Google, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer reached out to her former colleagues at the giant search company.  Below is a statement that Yahoo! sent out about the agreement:

Every day, people turn to Yahoo! for their daily habits ? like search, weather, news or more. At Yahoo!, we?re focused on doing everything we can to make the user experience inspiring and engaging. One way we do that is by providing relevant and well-targeted content ? whether that be editorial or advertising content.

Say you?ve been shopping for boots. If you see an ad for boots, that?s instantly going to pique your attention more than an ad for, say, a car battery. That?s better for users. This is why contextual advertising is such a powerful tool.

Today, we?re excited to announce that we recently signed a global, non-exclusive agreement with Google to display ads on various Yahoo! properties and certain co-branded sites using Google?s AdSense for Content and Google?s AdMob services.

By adding Google to our list of world-class contextual ads partners, we?ll be able to expand our network, which means we can serve users with ads that are even more meaningful.

For our users, there won?t be a noticeable difference in how or where ads appear. More options simply mean greater flexibility. We look forward to working with all of our contextual ads partners to ensure we?re delivering the right ad to the right user at the right time.

Yahoo!’s deal with Google is not exclusive and this would be a good way for them to make additional revenues.  Google gets the advantage of working with a more targeted audience rather than giving inventory to publishers that do not get many clicks on ads.  Google’s AdSense ads are placed on over 2 million websites.
