I haven't posted in a while. There was a thread about a year ago on this here. The question is still out there, perhaps some history/domain/SEO buffs out there might know. I am trying to trace down some history. Goto.com became Overtures.com, so Yahoo owns Overtures. But what happened to goto.com? Why does it redirect to myway.com (which is owned by Ask Jeeves)? What is the back story of GoTo.com being transfered to Go2.com owners. I noticed they have GoTwo.com but not GoToo.com. I find it odd and with enough search engine watchers here I hope one of you know.

Apparently this happened last year, January 13, 2004. Noticed by vibgyor79 [webmasterworld.com] on that date.

Have to love the meta description for MyWay:

My Way is a web portal and search engine like Yahoo!, but without any banners, pop-ups or spam.

Is Ask Jeeves accusing Yahoo of pop-ups and spam?
