If you’re going to do some car research, odds are good that you’ll be doing it online. A new study indicates that consumers are turning to the web more than ever – and they’re turning, more specifically, to manufacturers’ websites. “Offline” resources, by comparison, seem to be dwindling in terms of importance.
Yahoo! is trying to get its act together with regard to click fraud. The first fall out of Yahoo!’s efforts is banning of foreign site visitors from YPN ads. Yahoo! is intent on restricting internal ad frauds by barring visitors from certain countries from viewing the ads.
