  1. After a failed merger attempt last year and following months of back and forth negotiations, Microsoft and Yahoo have officially announced a 10-year search deal to better compete with leader Google. Under the agreement, Microsoft’s Bing search engine would now be the exclusive search provider for Yahoo’s sites and in exchange the latter will sell both its own and Microsoft’s search ads using the AdCenter platform.

    I'm a fan of alltheweb.com. But I believe its been powered by Yahoo!. (at least when some thing errors is give a reference address xxxxxxxxxxxx.yahoo.cccc\------ cannot be found etc)

    Any one know if this site will also roll over to the Bing service?

    Good the more companies that advertise with Bing are just more companies to avoid when buying products.
     
  5. I'm using Google from now on. Yahoo! has sold their soul.
     
  6. Faroo, KallOut, and Surf Canyon, kosmix.... etc.

    Google is not the only search engine (well for sheep it is)
