CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  In its first big movie during the reign of new boss Carol Bartz, Yahoo unveiled a trio of new advertising targeting products that incorporate some of the innovations Google has brought to the online ad marketplace. Given the slow, painful decline of Yahoo’s revenues in general and the display ad industry as a whole, a lot is riding on the advances – which seek to merge the arenas of search and display as a single solution. The new products include Search Retargeting, giving advertisers the ability to place display ads based on a users’ search activities; Enhanced Retargeting, delivering dynamically generated display ads across the Yahoo network based on user activity on an advertiser’s site; and Enhanced Targeting capabilities for search advertising, including ad scheduling and demographic targeting within search. Meanwhile in an overview with analysts Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer once again reiterated his interest in pooling search resources with Yahoo, per ZDNET. Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.
