Overture or now known as Yahoo because of Yahoo’s takeover, was the original inventor of the use of the P4P or Pay for Performance. Overture saw that the internet was fast becoming the easiest and most convenient way to shop, and advertising was going to hit at an all time high because of the many businesses in the arena. To get a person to go to a site than others, it needs to be very visible. Providing ads that could direct potential consumers and costumers to their site would allow them to have an increase in traffic as well as sales. Yahoo provides a service, for example promoting san diego dj service, that can put a site or company’s ad in their sites that can be shown when certain keywords are inputted. Yahoo offers a chance for any company to increase their traffic by using their services. With more people being aware of your site, there would be more traffic and visitors to your site given the chance to view your pages as well as your products. With even a small percentage of successful sales, with a high traffic volume this could still be a substantial figure for your company.

Yahoo/Overture utilizes the same principle as Google’s Adwords. In fact, they are very similar to each other that they use keyword and keyword phrase searches and to determine which ads to show per search. When a person types in a keyword or keyword phrase to search for anything, the search engines gives out the results in a page. Then at the right side of the page, you will see selected ads that have paid for their ads to be viewed with certain keywords and keyword phrases searched. While some labor so hard to make their site one of the high ranking sites per keyword search, you get the chance to be on the top of the list or at least in the first page of a search result increasing your chance to be clicked on. With that, you drive traffic and website visitors to your site a lot faster. You will have to pony up some cash when using this service though. There are different ways Yahoo/Overture will charge you. It may be in the number of Keywords or Keyword phrases your ad uses or in the many times your ad is clicked on. Others offer many other services like having your ad show up not only in the search engine pages but also with some third party sites.

Third party sites support ads that have the same theme or niche as them. With more areas your ad is shown, you increase the chances of people knowing about your site or product. With more website visitors you increase the sales of your site which makes your investment with your ads a wise one. With so many competitions in the internet based businesses, it is necessary to take a huge leap forward from the pack by advertising. Yahoo/Overture will be a great place to start. Many have utilized their services and have reaped the rewards of this decision. It’s a marketing strategy that will increase your website visitors as well as increase your sales resulting to profit.

      Yahoo Pop Mail stopped working. No changes had been made to the computer.
      There clearly is a problem with Yahoo, as many others have noticed also.
      So, where the f$#k is the official Yahoo pop server status page?
      It seems impossible to get any answers out of Yahoo. They’ve screwed up again.

      Hi guys, I know it’s a dumb question but is there a way to contact Yahoo directly through phone or email.

      Besides that, I would like to know what are the requisites for becoming an Yahoo Knowledge Partners. What should I do and I work in a medium size software portal company.

      Please list some phone and email contact to yahoo.
      Thank you in advance.

      Tony.

      I have always been a yahoo supporter but the AP never runs Ron Paul articles regardless of internet interest in him. Google show him leading in searches, straw polls show him winning and he won the micigan debate, but nothing from yahoo. I am switching completely over to google if I don’t see some change in yahoo or unless someone has a valid reason why yahoo doesn’t show Ron Paul.

      I do not like Yahoo Pulse showing my age. How do I stop using Yahoo Pulse and return to the old Yahoo profile?
      When you click on the hide box for birthdate it doesn’t resolve the problem.

      I want to delete the yahoo personal profile I recently created, without deleting my entire yahoo email. I am very frustrated because I have found this question on Yahoo answers and followed the instruction in the answers, but there is NO delete profile button after going into edit on my yahoo personal account. Please help, this is very vague.

      I am wondering what the working environment is like in a correctional facility for healthcare workers. Like xray techs or nurses etc..

      Is it a relatively safe or controlled environment or are they exposed to any dangers that a officer would be?

      If you’re in the midst of a capital campaign, at what point can you start building the facility you’re raising funds for? That is, if you’re still fundraising for the facility, what percentage of the total figure do you need to start construction? Just looking for an approximate, ballpark figure here.

      What is the best way to choose a facility if you don’t know anyone that has been at one. Do you shop around and ask to see the place? Or what would be recommended?

      My father has Alzheimer’s disease and we are considering placing him in an Assisted Living facility near my home. How do I go about investigating whether any complaints have been lodged against the facility? Is there a website that provides information? I feel they are trying to rush us into making a decision.

      When a person leaves a 30 day alcohol rehab facility and is faced with many options, what do they do? Obviously 30 days is not enough for a very successful recovery so extended treatment is often neccessary. There is sober living houses and there are 90 day treatment programs that follw the initial 30 day treatment. What is the main difference between the two?

      Obviously the athlete is benefiting from working with olympic trainers and using their facility, but if the Olympic Training Commitee is a Sec 501(C)(3) non-for-profit, then could an athletes parents make tax deductable donations to the commitee even though their kid is benefiting from the training?

      I need to put my mother into a skilled nursing facility, hopefully for just short-term rehab. How can I know which facility is the best? I really worry about her not accepting this well and want her to be in a good place but can’t seem to find any reviews on facilities. How is this decision made?

      Sometime in the future I would like to start a wolf preservation facility. I was curious how someone would do that. What permits would be needed for something like this? I have looked into other wolf preservation facilities around the country. I know that states have certain regulations. So, what states would be good choices? This is something that wouldn’t happen for at least 10 years and I know the laws change but I am trying to start planning now. If you could give me info or direct me to good sites on the topic, that would be great.

      My friend entered rehab on Tuesday afternoon. It is kind of a bare bones type facility, nothing fancy or spa like!! He has been addicted to pain meds (10-20 a day) for a few years. He has no phone privliges yet and i am wondering what the process is like? Do they medicate you to help w/ withdrawal?

      I am currently in nursing school and I want to start taking the appropriate steps to open an assisted living facility. Can anyone please tell me the first 10-20 steps to getting the business up and running?
      i know the state gives you licensing requirements but I would like personal insight from someone with experience or that might know somebody that has done this already.

      I am talking about facilities where they pick up all the paper, cans, glass, cardboard, etc. together in one container at the curbside and then have to sort them all out at the facility. The citizens do not do any sorting of the recycling materials on their own.
