Anyone else find Google’s top 10 searches for 2006 a little strange; or at least different as compared with Yahoo and MSN?

Yahoo and MSN both have Pamela Anderson, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton in their top 10 searches. Google doesn’t have any of these ladies?!

Can we say that Googles users are a little more highbrow than that of Yahoo and MSN?

And hats off to Pam Anderson. Did she do anything in 2006? Yet, still in the top 10!!

Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Microsoft’s Virtual Earth now offers a birds eye view when viewing locations. You can still drag the map and zoom in, but also notice you can click on north, south, east or west to pivot your view, very cool.

Google to advertise on radio

Saturday, December 9th, 2006

At the Inside Adwords blog, Josh M., a member of the Google Audio Ads team says this:

“Google Audio Ads brings efficiency, accountability, and enhanced ROI to radio advertising by providing advertisers with an online interface for creating and launching radio campaigns. You’ll be able to target your customers by location, station type, day of the week, and time of day. After the radio ads are run, you will be able to view online reports that tell you exactly when your ad played.”

“Over the last year, we’ve been partnering with both terrestrial and satellite radio stations across the U.S. so that our advertisers have many options for broadcasting their ads — whether it’s a Country station in Tyler, Texas or an Adult Contemporary station in New York City. Currently, there are hundreds of stations to choose from and we hope to grow the list over the coming year. Our broadcast partners are looking forward to making their ad inventories available to thousands of new advertisers, especially since they aren’t easily accessible today.”
