increased compared to the third quarter. Google got 57 percent of spending, with
Yahoo 23 percent, followed by MSN at 5 percent. Average cost per click was
estimated at 58 cents, though the report added a caveat that it was difficult to
guage this price accurately for various reasons. More details from
