Yahoo Tries Something Old, Launches New Home Page

I cannot tell you how many times I have reported that Yahoo has released a new home page in the almost 6 years of me covering search. I honestly cannot count the times I reported on this topic. From numerous times they tested various home page designs, to the times they released the new design, to the times they rolled back those designs. To me, this news is a big snore, but what is a blogger to do?

Right now, it is pretty hot on Techmeme and since we covered this type of news an infinite number of times, I figured, I'd let you read the news via Techmeme. What I really want to hear from Yahoo is Microsoft buying them. :)

Here are screen shots of the new home page, which you should see on Yahoo.com later today.

And how search may be integrated into the new design:

I really dislike the new page. When I write an http address, I don't have to go through Yahoo. Like it the way it used to be. I am looking at other site as my homepage

complaint = yes, new yahoo homepage = NO. this is a terrible page. please do not make this switch mandatory. this is not going to be good for your business. many of us will simply choose another homepage to use. Think about it Yahoo! You are making a huge marketing mistake that will cost you costomers in the short term, and may cost you your business in the long term. -citizen
