To Microsoft’s credit, they acquired and redirected SearchAlliance.com to their advertising site before formally notifying their customers about having received federal government approval  of a Search Alliance with Yahoo.

With the addition of SearchAlliance.com, Microsoft now has 26,893 domains registered.

Microsoft appears to have just flipped the switch on their new domain because SearchAlliance.com is still showing up for sale in Google search results.

Microsoft hasn’t yet begun buying Adwords to promote their news to Google’s audience.

Domain Renewal Problems Update

August 30, 2009

In a previous post, I wrote about my domain renewal problems with a registrar who hasn’t responded to my emails or returned my phone calls about their website not processing renewal orders.

It appears I have already lost one excellent domain and others are at risk.

I wrote the post in hopes it would be discovered by someone who could help me get my domains renewed and out of the control of what appears now to be a defunct registrar agent.

Indeed within twelve hours of writing about the problems I was experiencing, I was contacted by someone offering to help solve my domain registrar problems.

At this point it looks like my domain registration headaches may be over.

If so, I will report who helped me solve my domain registrar problem, how they did it and what others who may have experienced the same problem can hope to solve theirs.
