Yahoo Organic Search Now Powered By Bing Everywhere*

Yahoo Powered By Microsoft BingWell, it is done - Yahoo, everywhere you go with the exception of Korea, even on mobile or desktop, will be fully powered by a different search engine - Microsoft Bing.

Yahoo Search is not providing their own algorithmic search results anymore, like they haven't being doing so in the U.S. in Canada since August 2010. Country after country, Yahoo has been handing over their search technology and search engine to Microsoft.

The other day, Yahoo declared the process is now complete, with the exception of Korea. Why not Korea? Because of "a three-way integration between Yahoo, Microsoft and Daum, remains, and is expected to complete by the end of the year."

That being said, this was the plan and the plan has been implemented.

Paid search is still not fully transitioned over. It is in the U.S., Canada and many other countries, but not every where, not yet.

For some reason, I remain sad about all of this.

Well, yes, the sadness is really with globalization and the swallowing up of big fish by big fish, but let's be honest; they have a long road to Google City.

It is really sad Yahoo did not take up Google offer of buying them out. I will miss Yahoo.

Yahoo! always has a spot in my heart.  This was the first website I visited on my first visit of the web.  To see it go out like this is painful... and Microsoft... oh well!  I guess all good things must come to an end. Yeah, Yahoo! should have taken Google's offer.

Their search service is useless. They should have taken it down for once and concentrate on social media but even they are not putting up a good fight. Without their email service, few would bother heading to Yahoo.

This really sucks!! Yahoo was what I've been using for years and now every site I visit is being overtaken by Google! I cannot find anything with Google, bing or (now) Yahoo! So frustrating!
