Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@Ariella Why do I not remember Yahoo as a search engine? I think I've only ever used Google, and I hate it when "Bing" comes up. I do not like that search engine. As far as Mayer goes, don't know much about what she did or didn't do at Yahooooo, but she's pretty much set for life now. Some people are just very lucky.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@Mike when gold just doesn't convey it, we have to name it platinum. Maybe the next CEO to get the boot will have a diamond parachute!

I haven't used Yahoo search either. The only time I end up on its site is when I read a  news outlet draw on Yahoo news for its article. That's because I always like to trace news to the original reported source.

Yahoo
It'll be really interesting to see what Verizon has in store for Yahoo! Now that I'm typing this I am thinking of the commercials they used to run with the guy that said "Yahooooo!" At the end. Maybe that was part of their demise, the commercials slowed down as Google became the power giant it is today. So while Google's name was getting tossed around the office, no one heard "Yahooo!" to remind them to go back to the site. I do still know a few people that use Yahoo, but there aren't many and they are far between.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@Mike, I totally agree!  Yahoo lost its way and was not able to recapture their earlier leadership position.  Google and others have become much more relevant!  They were the predominate system but failed to look at the developing market.

I also agree about Mayer, she took over when the ship was already sinking.  She did not appear to know how to redirect it or lead to new relevance.  She did a good job, but not good enough!  I also agree we should not shed tears for her, she walks away with good comp. for her time and efforts.

Now it will be interesting to see what happens.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
I don't think Yahoo's demise can entirely be blamed on Mayer, but she never seemed to have a handle on moving Yahoo forward. I can recall when everyone in an office I worked in used Yahoo for search until a co-worker said we should try Google. I can't recall the last time I've used Yahoo for a search, but I do go to the finance section on occasion.

Yahoo CEO Exits
The Yahoo CEO has made many contributions to Yahoo etc. I use Yahoo for web searching emails etc. So with Verizon purchasing it that will be more revenue for them as a business.
