Microsoft has taken the pain out of designing a Web site by hiring a small
armada of professional designers to create virtually hundreds of Web page

determine a monthly advertising budget and you can decide how much to pay for
each keyword click. When your ad-click costs match your set budget, your ad
stops appearing in the sponsored ad areas for that keyword.
