    Verizon and Future of Yahoo


    Hello, now that Yahoo is under Verizon is there any potential for a revival for them? I don't really consider them when doing any SEO for clients.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Good question. But I would never disregard Yahoo. Bing/Yahoo/MSN together hold a good percentage of performed searches.

    And Google has to eventually stumble.

    I should say I do not track anything in Yahoo. They used to be a bigger deal right? Wonder if Verizon bring them back at all.

    It has been a while since Yahoo was a big deal, but last time I checked they still held almost 30% of the search market (Yahoo/Bing/MSN). I haven't checked in a year or more, so that number could be lower.
    But I don't have a lot of confidence in Verizon.

    Good point, I don't either. They may of bought it for any number of reason none of which are to bring back the search market.
