There was a time when Yahoo was the number one search engine for internet users, unfortunately, for Yahoo, that is no longer the case. Yahoo is no longer considered one of the technology leaders for internet search engines or tools, and the company's reputation is nowhere near where it used to be. Yahoo believes that one of the biggest reasons for their decline is the fact that the company changed its focus several years ago, from focusing on the technical aspects of their existing products, to focusing more on new media related products. Yahoo is now re committed to improving the technology behind their search engine and other tools, which is evidenced by the sale of many of their media products to Microsoft.


There was a time when Yahoo was the number one search engine for internet users, unfortunately, for Yahoo, that is no longer the case. Yahoo is no longer considered one of the technology leaders for internet search engines or tools, and the company's reputation is nowhere near where it used to be. Yahoo believes that one of the biggest reasons for their decline is the fact that the company changed its focus several years ago, from focusing on the technical aspects of their existing products, to focusing more on new media related products. Yahoo is now re committed to improving the technology behind their search engine and other tools, which is evidenced by the sale of many of their media products to Microsoft.

And while it seems that they are being taken over by Microsoft, executives at Yahoo have stated that they still tend to maintain their foothold in the search engine market. But is the best truly yet to come for Yahoo?

Yahoo is now competing with the Google search engine, and Microsoft's Bing search engine to be the most popular search engine. To do this Yahoo is going to completely change the way their search engine works, which they hope will allow them to provide the most relevant results of all of the search engines. In addition to these major changes to their search engine, Yahoo is also working on developing new and innovative tools that will provide functionality for users that they have never seen before.

Yahoo thinks they have an advantage over Microsoft and Google, since they will be providing a long tail for each search, providing relevant information to users based on classifications of products, places and individuals. Yahoo believes that this strategy will help to optimize their search results by only providing relevant information. The more they can limit search results to the most relevant content only, the more Yahoo feels they will be able to succeed in reclaiming the title of the most used search engine.

The question for Yahoo now is how quickly they can develop and implement these changes, and if they will be able to bring users back into the fold once this improved search engine is released. Yahoo believes that this effort will be a success, and that the company will return to its former prominence, but only time will tell.
