Yahoo has launched a snappy new blog today for Yahoo Search Marketing. Call me crazy, but purple is my favorite color after all and the look/feel of this blog is consistent with many of the newer and more progressive blog designs coming out.
With the launch of Yahoo’s new platform (Panama) it makes sense to offer a communication channel specific to Yahoo advertising options. I am very interested in the media side of this:
“We‚Äôll examine how 21st Century media such as Tivo, satellite radio and the Internet are contributing to the challenges faced by traditional marketing channels like TV, radio and newspapers. Audiences are fragmenting, and advertisers both large and small are looking for understanding and insight into alternate solutions that will provide the connections they need to their target markets.”
Of course the transparency thing doesn’t hurt:
“The blog gives you a direct pipeline to Yahoo! execs, and provides an opportunity to help shape future product offerings. We pledge to regularly respond to your comments and questions in an honest and direct way.”
Good job Stevem Jeff and Michael and the YSM team. We’ll be watching what Yahoo! Search Marketing Blog has to offer.
