So Microsoft has released MSN adCenter today. Go get some.
And Jen’s blogging on MSN’s intention to test contextual ads this summer too.
Also, if you carefully read between the lines in this ZDnet article, you will notice :
The company is also announcing that it is acquiring DeepMetrix, a privately held Web analytics company. Microsoft said it plans to expand upon the company’s existing services and will build new analytics capabilities into future versions of AdCenter.
So Urchin from Google will have a new friend.
People at Threadwatch, are just hoping Microsoft will release an Analytics alike service, free. I don’t think this is the case though :)
