SEARCH ENGINE NEWS
*****************************
LOOKSMART
There is a rumor that Looksmart is going to look to the PPC model in order to increase revenues. Priority will be given to existing customers official announcements should be made in the next few weeks if this is true.

OVERTURE
Changes at Overture. Like AltaVista, Overture requires a alphanumeric combination to be entered in order to access any accounts. This verification tool was put in place to block non-approved bid management tools. For a full review of the 7 approved bid management tools refer to http://www.paypermaster.com/apptools.html In addition as of April 1st Overture has introduced different support packages that are directly related to the amount advertisers spent. There are 3 levels of packages available, basically the more you spend the better you are treated! :-)

CONFERENCES

The schedule for the Shareware Industry Conference is filling out nicely. In addition to the well known Shareware Sites like CNet and Tucows the FBI, and Overture will be speaking.
