    alexa basically shows traffic rank and yahoo will be very popular in terms of email, advertizement and all area except search engine so people used yahoo for various purpose.

    Unlike google, Yahoo has quite a bit of other 'websites' on their portal. Yahoo Finance, Autos, Food, 360, games, and so much more.
