Yahoo Begins Offline Advertising Campaign for Search

Yahoo is beginning an aggressive advertising campaign in order to get people to use it (again) for search.

Expect to see display ads (like the one below) and hear radio ads as the campaign unfolds.

The Yahoo Search blog posted a radio ad on its blog. It uses the concept of searching the web as a jungle and that users need Yahoo’s security measures to protect them from the dangerous and even wacky stuff on the web.
