Two of the biggest names in the Internet are Yahoo and Google. Its no longer surprising that competition will exist between these two giants. When Google has launched its adsense campaign it started dominating the Internet but of course Yahoo will not just let this pass without creating one of their own. If Google has Adsense, Yahoo on its part has created the Yahoo Publisher. But comparing the overall design of the two programs we will see that they are somewhat similar in some respects.
To better understand the two programs it would be best that we discuss them separately.
Let us start with the infamous Adsense Program. This program is an automated ad service that allows small web owners to display advertisements on their own web pages in return they will receive a portion or a share of the pay-per-click revenue that Google will generate out from the Adsense. This is an additional income for web owners.
This will make the adsense appear as if it is an original part of the page. This will lead your site visitors to think that it is a link to one of your site?s pages and would therefore click on it for additional information that they may require.
There are several features that set Yahoo?s Publisher distinct from Google adsense and these are as follows:
1. You will not see the Google?s famous tagline??Ads by Google?
2. The ad blocks used by Yahoo do not touch each other
3. Another obvious distinction is the text inside a block is cut off and ends in an ellipsis.
These are just some of the prominent features that differentiate Yahoo?s Publisher from Google?s Adsense. But unlike Yahoo, Google requires its advertisers to refrain from using incomplete phrases and to limit the phrases to a certain number of characters per line.
In using Yahoo?s Publisher when you click on the ads you are transmitted to the advertiser?s page but you have to pass through first an Overture server. This Overture Server by the way is Yahoo subsidiary or soon to become Yahoo Search. The main function of this server is to do ad serving.
Now that you know the features and benefits of both programs you may now decide which of these two would be more advantageous for your sites.
