Yahoo (YHOO) +2.3% AH after announcing a non-exclusive display ad deal with Google (GOOG). Targeted Google AdSense Web ads and AdMob mobile ads will be shown on Yahoo properties; Yahoo (given its size) will presumably get a more favorable revenue cut than most Google partners. The deal is a major feather in Google's cap - its display ad ops have been growing quickly, but face tough competition from Facebook and others - and should strengthen its mobile ad leadership. Yahoo search partner Microsoft (MSFT) can't be pleased.

    Marissa Mayer is a real trojan horse. Nice played, Google! Take that, Microsoft! :)

    Hardly a "trojan horse" as she is building share value and revenue for YHOO; the fact that GOOG derives a benefit is surely secondary, not a GOOG play, but beneficial for both YHOO and GOOG.

    Well, doing ads requires traffic. Google has the traffic but Microsoft does not have much. So what's there for Microsoft to complain about?
