Maybe your traffic does come from them. But what would happen if Disney bought it, painted it orange, gave it a breezy style, installed the guides, and killed it deader'n h*ll?
Frankly, I'm partial to spidering engines (OK, OK.... NBCi and spidering engines). I could make a good case that the fall of Yahoo could be the best thing that could happen for SEO. Think about it... who'd inherit the mantle as the most popular place to search? Google, perhaps? MSN?

But seriously, I think FAST is going to keep rising up in the ranks as a major player. Along with Lycos they are going to be a huge world-wide name. With them powering at least one major search engine in each country, I think pretty soon they are going to top out Google and Yahoo altogether. With the help of Terra-Lycos, who is looking at trying to be at a same level with AOL, this very well can happen in the near future.
