December 9th, 2009, 09:25 AM #1Old News? Bing buying PPC ads on the Big G?
This is probably old (or very old) news, but I just noticed this morning that Bing is buying PPC ads on the "competition."
In responding to a post in another thread and looking for an example for my response, I happened to see a PPC ad on the SERPs for a term I was checking that surprised me.
To me this is "interesting" to say the least: Here is a PPC ad on Goog's SERPs.
Cheap Ocean City Hotels
Save Time & Money With Easy Booking
& Great Deals. Search Bing™ Travel!
Is anybody else seeing things like this? Or am I just very late to the party?

It's been going on for at least a month or two.
Google still allows "dictionary buys" and arbitrage from people like ask, about, or bing. Not sure why.

Google probably has decided that they have nothing to lose in sending users to Bing & Bing probably thinks the user will stick around/bookmark.
