    Ask.com Launches AdSense Competitor
    http://mashable.com/2007/04/25/askco...se-competitor/

    Available May 21st with up front earnings % and more editorial control than AdSense. Could be interesting.

    Interesting indeed.

    Competition is always good. Now Google will have a stimulus to improve the "product quality" even further.

    That is great news as long as they leave this separate from IAC's fleet of BHO applications. If they plug this into their adware and pop your site on the infected computer, you will receive negative exposure and the advertiser will be paying for automated clicks that do nothing but annoy people. When the legal problems arise from this activity, those who profited from it will be included in all of the "activities". That would include innocent affiliates.

    IAC is a big adware player and has proven over and over again that they are not scared or even shy about using Zango and other such applications to promote their retail web properties such as Shoebuy.com by popping over their competitors.

    Proceed with caution.

    I will pass on this just like I did with yahoo. There is no sense in reinventing the wheel.

    Hope this works out. I may try them on a small site or two.

    I am happy with Google, but I am way too dependent on them now. What's up with Yahoo anyway? Still in beta? Am also waiting of MSN to come up with something.
