Google trounces Yahoo!… Again

Search engine Yahoo! has copped a fair smacking over the years from major competitor Google, and more recently Microsoft’s Bing.

Yahoo!’s search has been steadily on the decline for years, and it seems that currently their only successful products are Yahoo! Answers and photo sharing site Flickr. Speaking of Flickr, 2 years after Flickr was acquired by Yahoo! they changed the logo adding a “from Yahoo!” subscript on it’s right hand side; causing a backlash from users.

But if there ever was a bad time for negative publicity, this is it.

Off the back of this week’s announcement that Google is rewarding all of their employees with a bonus and 10% pay rise, today news breaks that Yahoo! is rumoured to lay of over 20% of their employees.

Yahoo! just can’t seem to catch a break. Check out the must read “What Happened to Yahoo” by Y Combinator‘s Paul Graham.

    People are going to wish they supported Yahoo! more when Google's robot army takes over the world.

    But Google swears they operate by “Don't be Evil”.

    Yeah, and if you were evil wouldn't that be what you told everyone? The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
