New Leadership

Kelly Liang is our new VP - Head of Business Development and Partner Management. In addition to Search Partnerships, Kelly will lead all platform and mobile partnerships across Verizon Media. Kelly joins us from Essential Products where she was COO. Kelly is also a boomerang from 2002 when she was a BD lead for Yahoo Finance.

Verizon Media and Microsoft Expand Search Partnership

Verizon Media and Microsoft have expanded our partnership through two recent announcements. In January we publicized our global native advertising deal and strengthened search partnership. For any questions regarding either of these announcements please contact your partner manager.

Review Implements Prior to Launch

As a reminder, please continue to work with your partner manager before implementing any UX changes or ad format enhancements to ensure necessary approvals are in place before launching. The Center of Revenue (COR) team is also available to connect on optimization opportunities that could drive incremental revenue.

Search Buzz

Search Buzz will soon be made available to partners in five EMEA marketplaces, UK, DE, FR, IT and ES. The expected launch for these new markets is the end of Q1'19. Partners who are interested in using search buzz in these new markets should contact their partner managers to discuss further.
