MSN adCenter Content Ads Now LiveMSN's version of AdSense is now live for a select group of advertisers who have received invites. Unlike Adsense, MSN uses discretion (for now) and only displays its content ads on its own network of content pages, a.k.a. MSN.com. There is an example of the ad unit at the bottom of this MSN page
Barry first reported this back in Aug and an MSN representative told me these ads went live last night.
In my opinion, I really hope they are strict about what publishers they let display their content network ads as opposed to Google who let everyone and their brother and in my mind was basically the sole reason for splogs and MFA sites. This mistake has virtually diluted the quality of success on the content network for a lot of Google's advertisers. Knowing how MSN operates, I'm pretty sure they won't open it up for everyone and anyone but in case they are thinking about it, don't!
