Overture’s sponsored search listings will be distributed to ValueClick’s Pricerunner sites across Europe (including UK, Germany, France, Denmark and Sweden) and other sites included in the ValueClick Europe media network. As the premium paid listings partner of Search123, Overture will display up to four results in addition to three results from Search123.

We believe that this agreement will give us the greatest opportunity to quickly grow revenues for publishers whilst launching Search123 into the UK market.”
