Microsoft Salespeople Luck Out With Yahoo! Search Deal

Salespeople at Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) are relieved.

According to reports at The Business Insider, rumor had it that if a Microsoft-Yahoo search engine deal went through, Yahoo would take over display sales at MSN. That possibility worried Microsoft sales reps, who already were short-staffed and feared for their jobs.

But, as it turns out, those concerns are for naught. The terms of the recent deal call for Yahoo salespeople to sell ads on Bing … and Microsoft will get all of the revenue.
