And i have noticed when i type in keywords, and its only like 3 pages long and they say displaying 1- 10 of about 37 and it is only like 12 what is that about?

    when it only shows you 10 but says showing 37 click where it says the results are filtered, usually this means they are from the same site. Also yahoo results are not fake google is far more particular then yahoo at displaying who is listed for what keyword.

    Actually you are wrong. Yahoo! was founded before Google. At first Yahoo! was human edited, but they have since contracted with a few different crawler-based search engine providors to beef up their results as they knew they could not possibly index everything.

    Man , Yahoo was first! google is really new!
    I think that google founders... wanted to sell/give theyre search tehnology to Yahoo or Lycos. But everybody refused them ! yahoo/lycos didn't got any algo then.... (i think lycos had something , if more clicks on a result that result will rank higher)
    they said that no nead for a better results, blah blah ,
    they only criteria they had was "oldest sites firsts"

    - Yahoo/Lycos was thinking was good to keep somebody searching in 100 sites for after writing a keyword , because then wasn't that AdWords idea! i mean they where only BANNER, 460x60 pixels banners, and no sponsored listings :) bleah ...

    You are right and if you read the articles you would have seen that Yahoo had a contract with them for a few years to provide their crawler based searches. Of course that has changed since Yahoo! developed their own now and has gotten away from the human edited roots they had. They simply could not keep up with the crawler based indexing.


    There is only a matter of months between their foundings. Yahoo! simply incorporated much sooner than Google.

    Yahoo started as a portal and directory service.

    i dont know the history that well, but i know in the 90s google was more-than-less unheard of. Yahoo was the norm. google might have been in development... but noone used it or even heard of it.

    So how long do you think before Google buys Yahoo?

    It's Google's only real competitor, followed by msn, ask, and aol.

    To ensure your space in a market place, companies often acquire
    competition.

    I do not see this happening. As with many other markets with time the power shifts. It may be a while, but there will be something that might happen to make this shift happen. If Google buys anyone it will be smaller competitors, but not Yahoo! or MSN. Of course stranger things have happened.

    expect MSN in competition after 2 years from now. MSN algo is different at present and slowly evolving they are now independent. Google's share of free search engine market may go down once they have healthy competiiton from yahoo/ msn

    Yes, and until Google gets a real competitor you have to comply with it...

    This is very true. Just wait and see if any real competition finally develops.

    If I am right, Yahoo did use Googles search results on their site, but they had to pay for using them so they then decided to build their own meta search engine.

    I forgot who said that aol is competition in here, But AOL taps into Googles api key lol.
    And yes, I think i am going to index a few of my own pages, And hold on i have a software that can pull up all of googles links, and i can store them into my own database. Can google go after that on me, Because they can not actually own those links. The webmasters do, what can i do lol. Is that actually illegal im curious now.
