Watch out Google AdWords, Yahoo has started the rollout of their new search engine marketing interface and it is sweet!
The interface is a huge step into the future for Yahoo. Initially you may feel that it is similar to the Microsoft adCenter interface, but this one really works! What I really like is that once you get over the initial shock of the change and the new account structure, the interface is very usable.
Yahoo has created some very nice reporting features and allows you to graph dynamically several options to watch lets say clicks versus impressions, or impressions versus conversions. The editorial review process is now almost instantaneous, and the ad interface is really quite nice.
Overall Yahoo has a winner with their new control panel and interface. Best of all for clients who need regional targeting Yahoo’s really works!

One quick comment, for new accounts, I am not sure if you will automatically go into the new interface, but if you don’t pause your account until you are asked to migrate.
