    I got a 3 page letter from Jerry Yang. Yahoo has 2B cash to grow with.

    They do have some problems but they are working on them

    Maybe it's just me, but I prefer Yahoo search. I get better quality results.

    I don't think search is yahoo's main money maker.

    They also offer DSL and other internet access services.

    Every search engine or portal is popular in different geographic location. It is right popularity of google has increased from some time but it doesn't mean yahoo is dieing. I have recently checked traffic on yahoo and yahoo products and got very good traffic on yahoo and yahoo service websites.

    I think yahoo will keep improving their algorithm in order to compete google. But G is still at the top.

    Yahoo does not have the management team or the tech savvy to improve their search and advertiser experience. The ysm advertiser applications (Panama) are being outsourced to an inexperienced offshore team. Those applications are still several years behind Google and Google will increase their lead as Yahoo changes course and invests heavily in rich media ads. The rich media ad solution is a network or exchange (apex). Apex has limited analytics as Yahoos data-tracking is broken for the foreseeable future. That means the optimizations required for the exchange will be short changed. Take a quick look at Google's adwords/tvads to see where the trail is blazing. Yahoo hasn't begun to conceptualize the video ad space yet. Is Yahoo dieing? Well ... Yahoo is a great brand, mail is adequate, messenger sort of works (and I mean sort of, try conferencing - unstable) but internet growth and advertising dollars will not depend on those apps. Revenue depends on: search monetization (Google has that tied up), richmedia on community websites like myspace.com (Yahoos Apex does not address the analytics required to optimize cpm), video ads (Yahoo hasn't even conceptualized this yet). I believe the MS acquisition of Yahoo is good ... for Yahoo! employees. How did Yahoo get into this position? On some teams there are 6 layers of management between the CTO and developer. Too many chiefs not enough scientists and engineers. Will this change, I think so when MS gasps after they unwrap their Christmas present.

    yahoo doesnt consider as they main income as google so they wont develop much. the only way they can beat google is to teamupwith other SEs then invent new algo or new SE to compete with.

    I think Yahoo needs to become a bit like Google in sense of Pay per click, but other then that Yahoo has got a lot of other high quality services that it offers such as yahoo finance. If it concentrates on becoming like google it will not be yahoo anymore.

    Yahoo seems more focused on news delivery.

    They are more of a media company than they were in the mid 90's.

    there is a lot of good sections in Yahoo to go to such as sports, webmail, finance, answers and more

    OTOH, Google is only great for search...their webmail is OK..hate not having mail folders either.

    yahoo never had strenght in terms of search. its killer tool was the portal/directory but its branching out too much.

    google's quality has lowered as its algo's have died in importance. people know how to game google so its now full of spam , blogs, shopping links which is why google has started to become more of a portal.

    for me teoma was by far the best , this was before ask bought them. the only problem they had was scalability of the algo to several billion pages indexed.

    time now is for localised engines ie yandex in russia,baidu in china etc

    I beg to differ, but your wrong in my opinion.
    You put anything into google, it gives you what you want.
    Yahoo i just about as mutch use as windows live search.
    Google dominates the internet.

    I suspect that there is a certain amount of wishful thinking going on here. While Yahoo search my be lagging in the US and UK, it is still enormously ahead of the market in Japan, and dominates the IM market in a number of territories.

    While the Yahoo search engine is utter arse as far as a UK user reads, it continues to focus on its now core markets in the Far East, where aspects such as the domain name are extremely important to the user.

    The internet is an international concept and in order to provide a pragmatic result, a business must necessarily compromise in favour of the majority of its customers. Just because you are in the UK and your little affiliate website is ranking poorly does not mean that Yahoo is dying.

    Having said all that, from a western point of view, they are in decline, and I give them 6 months before m$oft take them over.

    Yahoo doesn't seem to be really dying, they just expanded advertising in different countries. Their whole site is great, specially the media. I don't think they are even focused on their engine as much as they used too anyways. But I do use google over yahoo, just because google for some reason I always type google but I won't type yahoo lol.
