  • In 1996, Yahoo! Was little more than a directory of the various web pages available on the internet. It was human powered and had a rudimentary search capability By 2001, Yahoo! grew less reliant on human input and more reliant on automation, spiders and bots. It was a true search engine. By 2004, Yahoo had become a portal, offering a vareity of services offerings. Search remained at the core, but they into far more than that Today, with varying degrees of missteps, Yahoo is a true media giant. Search is still important, but securing their position as a media property is even moreso. Takeway: Search is ever changing. And while most of the changes have been from internal influences – “we want to be a media company”or from competitive pressure – “Google is killing us on search. Let’s go buy Flickr!” -- today’s pressure is consumer-driven. And the change it will make on “search” will be fundamental in nature.
