are Sponsor Matches?
Matches are search results that are paid for by businesses or organizations and
provided through an alliance with Overture Services (formerly GoTo.com). All Sponsor
Matches are individually reviewed by editors for relevance to the specific designated
search terms. For example, if you search for "Digital Camera," you'll find Sponsor
Matches for web sites that provide information on digital cameras and/or sell
digital cameras. In addition to Sponsor Matches, you'll find categories and web
sites related to the topic of "digital cameras." To make it easy to distinguish
Sponsor Matches, Yahoo! search results display Sponsor Matches apart from Inside
Yahoo!, Yahoo! Categories, and Web Sites.
