    gmail redirects to http://mail.google.com which means it is hosted on the google domain :)

    Well I have been to asia, and everyone (or maybe 90%) use Yahoo! Mail when I was there. And Asia is a very big continent.

    Voilà...you see yahoo is crap? :D
    Nah just a joke :p

    But yeah in my eyes it's just because everything is on yahoo.com domain...
    But really EVERYTHING

    If yahoo would make; yahoo.be , yahoo.nl , yahoo.cn etc.. you would see their rankings decrease like hell... :D

    See alexa for google.nl for example... it's very high, so if you would count ALL those numbers together.. google would be 19884984 times yahoo.. :)

    Alexa is a bit weird but definitely Yahoo receives the most traffic from their email service. ;)

    4.3m!?

    I could've sworn that I've heard google are receiving around 13m searches a day, but I suppose that could be merely searches, not searchers :)

    I wish I got 4.3m to my freaking site!

    It is because, google has many TLDs like .co.in, .co.uk and many more which are not counted in Google.com's traffic, but yahoo has only one TLD .com, with different subdomains for different countries, so no matter from where a visitor is coming, he is counted to be on yahoo.com

    That happens because Yahoo! is more popular than Google or than any other place on the internet. Just imagine how many services Yahoo! offers (mail, messenger, search, answers, news...) and how many people visit their services. Just don't tell me you don't use any Yahoo! service at all...
    Yahoo! was even born earlier than Google with about 1 year (that is much in the internet life).

    I agree with post #55.
    I think Google would beat Yahoo! if youtube get under the Google domain. I mean something like youtube.google.com :)
