relentless focus on delivering the most innovative products and services on the Internet
Yeah right - like stuffing your search with your own results (in certain topics) and ensuring that unless you pay - you'll only appear WAY down the listings.
Way to go.
Get your search product sorted and you might make even more guys!
Yeah. One of the best and most tested business strategies around. Being the innovator is risky, dude. Watch, wait, do it better. A safer, smarter way to travel.
Yah**! = Entertainment
G**gle = Search
Almost different worlds at this point. We focus on the similarities. The rest of the world is enjoying the differences, as ogletree points out.
I believe Yahoo has the top IYP on the market and it doesn't come cheap to advertisers. They also have Yahoo! stores, auctions, and a personals section that costs money.
The bread and butter however will come in their network banner advertising. The number of impressions they are able to serve throughout their network on a daily basis is absurd.
In the end, they have diversified and put themselves in a position to succeed. Yahoo loses its search engine market and they are still very profitible. Most of their search traffic comes from regular Yahoo! users as well, and they have less of a chance of losing market share as Google does.
There is no comparision to Yahoo! online these days.
Somebody asked. I laugh when people say Yahoo emulates Google. That might be true for some technical and search functions, but in reality, Google would love to have the kinds of revenue streams and the diversification of revenue streams that Yahoo has.
I was referring to search basically, obviously yahoo cant copy things Google hasn't done.
But basically wherever you look Yahoo has ripped the idea off someone.
So like the reports says yahoo,
create innovative products and services on the Internet
is the joke i am laughing at.
Between Yahoo and Adsense, I make a good living.
Yahoo's Q4 Take Increases 3 fold
Yahoo's Q4 SE seems to increase too. So I would not say they think it is a money loss.
I would say they may have hired the more smart and geek people (maybe some of the best of Google too :-) - as Yahoo has build the best algo they ever had in Q4.
Yahoo and MSN as a portal are huge - AOL plans to be a portal competitor so it will be the year of the battling portals..
Lets just be glad MSN did not buy Google. The more competition the better.
