As more early results roll in, it appears that Yahoo's Panama platform is delivering as promised, improving ad performance for big-brand marketers and quality of results for searchers.

Last week, we saw results from Avenue A | Razorfish that supported this. Among that agency's clients, search impressions were up an average of 5 percent, cost per click (CPC) prices were down an average of 6 percent, with clickthrough rates up an average of 10 percent.

This week, we have similar early returns from search and media management firm SearchIgnite and RBC Capital Markets' research arm. A study of results from clients of SearchIgnite, and sister firm 360i showed that Yahoo's market share among those advertisers stabilized after Panama launched, ending a steady decline for the past year. It also found that clickthrough rates improved since Panama's launch, while cost-per-click has held steady.

You'll find the details in today's SearchDay, "Early Returns Encouraging for Panama."
