    While Google has had a massive stronghold, you shouldn't underestimate the Bing/yahoo search engine, especially with mobile. Many searches are now done without even going into a browser (In app searches and similar).

    Siri (Apple's virtual digital assistant) uses Bing by default.
    Cortana is Bing.

    Also, Windows 10 will have Cortana.

    Bing/Yahoo's effective reach was 33% in April 2015.

    maybe that is the user of Yahoo is not like Google...and the development of Yahoo itself not like Google...I think Yahoo must repair their service as well as soon as possible

    I never use yahoo for searching. I think it brings up a lot of horrible sites and most of them have nothing to do with what I am trying to find. It is amazing how bad some of it is at times. The last time I used it I think I had to go at least four pages in before I saw something that was anywhere similar to what I was looking for. I was doing something on a school paper and got the other three pages full of advertisements for going on a cruise and losing weight.


    I used to use Google a lot for my searches. This was what I used for years and it still has some pretty good search terms that can help. I would use it again as well because the searches are great and I can find my stuff pretty quickly. My biggest issue with this site is I think a lot of people have learned how to game up the system. Any time you look at SEO or ranking higher, it is talking about Google Adsense and the other options that are available on here. I feel that is going to hurt some of the results that I am seeing. But I think for now Google is a good choice if you want some results because they are keeping everything in track and trying to stop others from gaming the system.


    My new favorite search engine in Bing. I know a lot of people prefer Google or will use anything other than Bing, but this is the one that I like the most. In most cases, I am able to find what I am looking for within the first few search results. The only time I have issues is when I am looking for something pretty obscure, and then other websites are even worse. I work in freelance writing so I have to do a lot of research for projects, which makes it more likely that I would have trouble. But things go pretty smoothly for me.


    It doesn’t really surprise me though that Yahoo would rank so low. They are more interested in their own agenda right now. You can see this just by their home page. There are usually just a few stories on there and you can guess what they will saw before you even click on the link. I think they should spend a bit more time on the search engine part if they want to keep people around rather than their own agenda. Even people who agree with their views are going to turn away when they are not able to find things they are looking for online.


    I do think it is a matter of opinion though. I am sure a lot of people still like to use Yahoo for searching, but I bet they spend a lot more time than needed online.

    Yahoo's popularity has dropped in the recent years. My organic visitors coming from Yahoo were 4% and now it has dropped to 1% since 2014. So I think Yahoo has no more existence.

    For me, any search engine that brings quality traffic to my sites and blogs is a good search engine. :)

    Yahoo is an interesting search engine and one which, until recently, I had a very hard time taking seriously.From reviews of all hires and selling key properties such as alibaba to putting their own search technology back on the forefront; Yahoo has maintained its position as one of the top three search engines, despite not producing their own organic results.

    It depends on every search engine`s search algorithms. But yes, I agree with you, Yahoo`s place is in the past, they are loosing more and more terrain to the competition.
    For me facebook chat killed yahoo messenger (does yahoo messenger exist anymore?)
    Google search killed Yahoo search
    And the final blow was the email system. I used to be a fan of yahoo mail, but after I moved to Gmail Yahoo was dead for me.
    Maybe the search results on Yahoo are better in other countries, but here in Romania the results are not so good (and that`s me using kind words)

    Yahoo Search in indeed pathetic, but if you take a good look, you'd realise that Yahoo relies on Bing for its own results, after which Slurrp crawls your website.
    I'm hoping Yahoo discontinues its Bing association.
    Yahoo is decent for English results in India.

    What about quality traffic from Yahoo that leads to conversions on your monetized sites and blogs? ;)

    from my analytics, good ranking in yahoo really mean nothing. The traffic is very low quality. I would pick Bing, which is getting much better right now.
