Yahoo! Advertising Solutions = SCIENCE + ART + SCALE
Yahoo! continues to be a formidable competitor for Google in many ways. While Google may have a higher profile and garner more respect as a technology and search algorithm innovator, Yahoo Labs pursues research initiatives too.
While not as high-profile as Google, Yahoo keeps up to speed by acquiring smaller companies with innovative applications. Yahoo recently purchased Dapper, a new developed technology platform for delivering dynamic online ads.
Yahoo! also re-designed its venerable Yahoo Mail service.
When considering profitability from online advertising, business-to-consumer and business-to-business services, Yahoo actually surpasses Google in certain markets and niches, and is more accessible for many small businesses looking for turnkey solutions. This is due to Yahoo’s longer history, deeper industry experience and good customer service.
However, there is plenty of room for Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Bing and hopefully others. Choices are good for everyone!
