Yesterday I was logging into my Flickr account, which of course is owned by Yahoo.com, so I logged into my account through their site. If you’ve ever logged into their site, you may remember it just being a simple login form like most web sites. Imagine how many people log in to Yahoo and their properties every day? It has to be mega millions!
Now even better… imagine if that login page was monetized? Well, it looks like Yahoo got the message and is finally banking off their login page. Right now it’s just a variation of advertisements for Capital One credit cards, but it’s still pretty cool, and a great way to monetize a page no one thinks about.
To experience the Yahoo login page yourself and see the variation of advertisements, you can click here.
I’d love to see the back end stats for this ad campaign! I bet the impressions are through the roof, but how about click throughs and conversions?
