Yahoo! advertises on Google?

screenshot of google mail page with yahoo text link ad highlightedMaybe I'm alone, but this struck me as somewhat odd: A *Yahoo* ad in my Google Mail window. You'd think Google would block the competition from advertising -- but I guess if they're willing to pay for it... Kinda tells you where Yahoo! thinks the traffic comes from. ;-)

I'd dig in further if I were truly interested... ehh.

I did brainstorm some possible explanations:
  • "Ask Yahoo why a stock splits, Google's stock just keeps rising?"
  • "We're too busy making money to think about splits, maybe Yahoo knows?"
  • "Yahoo cares about the stock market, we care about collecting the world's data!"
