I'm curious if there's been any studies done talking about the gain of Yahoo on Google with respect to users switching from dial-up to broadband.
Yahoo made a very smart play partnering with SBC and Rogers for their high-speed offerings. I think as more and more residential users adopt broadband, Yahoo will gain marketshare at a rapid pace simply because of these adoptions and partnerships with major broadband players.
Where I am it is either COX for phone/cable or SBC.
The SBC phone group pitches it hard to residential customers and I am hearing of more friends, associates going SBC.
Not me Cox has bizz service to residential home based business service here for 99/month 4mb DWN :-)
So IMHO , i dont think Yahoo can gain a noticable search market share with the SBC deal! ... Traffic to non-search Yahoo properties may increase though
I think their deals with Microsoft to get into media center may be a route
