Bloomberg: Microsoft Launching “Pilot” Ad Program Wednesday

We’ve posted a couple items in the two weeks about Yahoo officials (Semel and Meisel) commenting about the possible end of their ad deal with Microsoft. This new Bloomberg article: Microsoft Plans Service to Sell Internet Search Ads, says that Microsoft will launch a pilot program this Wednesday (March 16). The article goes onto say that the prototype is in the “early stages” and will not be completely ready for six months to a year. Microsoft isn’t commenting today but will be briefing reporters tomorrow.
