Difference between Google Search Engine and yahoo search engine



(1.) Google has 60% share of total searches and yahoo has 20% of share of total searches .


(2.) Any website can be add in google search engine with this address http://blogsearch.google.com/ping . But if you want to add your website in yahoo search engine then click http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/submit


(3) Google has its own blog search engine yahoo has its own blog but not blog engine .


(4.) Google 's sharing of earning in the form of AdSense is so popular but yahoo's sharing is not popular.


(5. ) Google is much better than the other engines at determining if a link is a true editorial citation or an artificial link . Yahoo is is better than MSN but nowhere near as good as Google at determining if a link is a natural citation or not


(6) Google sprang out of a Stanford research project to find authoritative link sources on the web. In January of 1996 Larry Page and Sergey Brin began working on BackRub (what a horrible name, eh?)
After they tried shopping the Google search technology to no avail they decided to set up their own search company. Within a few years of forming the company they won distribution partnerships with AOL and Yahoo! that helped build their brand as the industry leader in search.


Yahoo! was founded in 1994 by David Filo and Jerry Yang as a directory of websites. For many years they outsourced their search service to other providers, but by the end of 2002 they realized the importance and value of search and started aggressively acquiring search companies.
Overture purchased AllTheWeb and AltaVista. Yahoo! purchased Inktomi (
in December 2002) and then consumed Overture (in July of 2003), and combined the technologies from the various search companies they bought to make a new search engine. Yahoo! dumped Google in favor of their own in house technology on February 17th, 2004.
Yahoo! has
a cool Netrospective of their first 10 years, and Bill Slawski posted a list of many of the companies Yahoo! consumed since Overture.
