There’s tons of stuff going on over at Microsoft. I can’t keep track of it all. So … Search Engine Journal has updates here (video), here (Office Live’s ad strategy) and here (MSN building ad network on internal sites).
In addition, this week the folks in Redmond are hosting an online Small Business Summit. But as far as I can tell from looking at the agenda, there isn’t anything really practical on online advertising and marketing. It seems to be almost entirely about selling software. Yet wouldn’t this be a perfect time to introduce AdCenter and other marketing vehicles from MSFT to small businesses? That content seems to be entirely absent … Strange.
