Btw, you are aware that Yahoo licenses Google's search technology, right?
As far as I know they still do. Although searches on Yahoo go through their "Directory" first, before being passed to a Goolge type search.brainwashmonkey said:Do they still? Yahoo used to have a sign at the bottom of their webpage that said "powered by Google", But I haven't seen it recently... it used to be quite prominent... maybe they're just hiding it now. I dunno
That's the thing though, the "Yahoo Directory" is just a basic meta search engine, Goolge's technology isn't. There HAVE been many variations to the meta search though. I don't know how old you are or how long you've been on the net, but search engines have come and gone a lot, each with their own iteration of the "basic search engine." Hell, I remember when www.webcrawler.com and www.lycos.com were top dog, I'm surprised they're even still around now.swizeguy said:well i hate to say it but there cant be that many variations to the basic search engine.
