Default New Article - Yahoo! Celebrates Ten Years

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/hedger/003583.html

Some Snippets:

"Yahoo was among the first Internet properties to grow solely by word of mouth. Within six months of its conception, over one hundred thousand unique users per day were visiting Yahoo."

"In June 1996, Yahoo changed its strategy by signing a deal to use Alta Vista as its primary search engine. Before this point, Yahoo had presented itself as a directory."

"Yahoo has grown very rapidly over the past two years since it acquired Inktomi in March 2003 and Overture, which then owned Alta Vista and AlltheWeb months later in July 2003. The purchase of Inktomi (along with the additions of Alta Vista and AlltheWeb), gave Yahoo the tools they needed to design their own algorithmic search engine that they released early last year. The purchase of Overture gave Yahoo the foothold they needed to challenge Google in the growing Pay-per-Click search-distribution market."


I was thinking about this the other day. I remember coming home from school one day and checking my email...a friend had sent me a link to this "cool new site that lists all these other sites" and told me to check it out. It was Yahoo...a few days after it had launched. Oh how far they've come.

Was anyone else out there using it back when it first started up? You know...before they had email, news, classified ads, groups, etc... Back when it was just a directory.
