In an effort to compete with the undisputed search king Google, Microsoft and Yahoo finally solidifies their 10 year search deal. And there’s a good reason for it. As per a Net Applications report, Google actually accounted for a massive 85% of all the searches performed on the internet. On a comparative scale Yahoo and Microsoft account for less than 10% when combined. That’s not just bad, its pathetic!
Basically Yahoo’s search engine will be powered by Bing while Yahoo will be responsible for selling advertisements. Hopefully a win-win for the companies.
