Microsoft and Overture Friday announced an extension of their search distribution agreement in the U.S. and the U.K. through June 2005. The deal covers paid advertising links in results returned to U.S. and U.K. users of MSN Search, though the companies indicated the new pact could be extended to searches emanating from other countries. Terms were not disclosed, but the deal is assumed to be based on an ad revenue split between the listing provider and the Web site on which the ads appear.
