Marissa Mayer, one of the top executives at Google, will be the next C.E.O. of Yahoo, making her one of the most prominent women in Silicon Valley and corporate America.
The appointment of Ms. Mayer, who was employee No. 20 at Google and was one of the few public faces of the company, is considered a surprising coup for Yahoo, which has struggled in recent years to attract top flight talent in its battle with competitors like Google and Facebook.

She won't be able to do it alone...
She said she hoped... to attract new talent from Silicon Valley to the company. “Talent is what drives technology companies,” she said.
Google Adwords and Adsense?
Mrs. Mayer will have a hard time. While she may partly be behind the success of Google search product, she had been also for years the head of product at Google. And what successes did she have there? Has there been any other overwhelming success apart from Google search? Or have they just been throwing product over product to the wall to see which sticks?
In 2010, she held a fundraiser at her house for President Barack Obama and has given to Obama annually since 2007.
Last year, Mayer contributed $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012.
Mayer is an active Democratic fundraiser. In 2011, she gave $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee. In 2010, she gave two donations of $30,400 to the DNC, according to Open Secrets.
She also has bundled between $100,000 and $200,000 for Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012, according to the Obama campaign.
