Is Yahoo Embarrassed Over Bing Powering Their Results?

Aug 19, 2010 - 11:00 am 1 by

As we know, Yahoo said the transition to Bing powered Yahoo organic search results is going to happen anytime this week. Well, many are now seeing the "Powered by Bing" label on the results.

I see them as well, and here is a picture:

Yahoo Powered By Bing

You see that? The font size is what you find in little disclaimers, the type font size used when you have to say something, but you are embarrassed or don't want people to see it. The font size is 8, sometimes Google bans sites for hiding text in that font size (kidding). Here is a larger picture, full size.

Yahoo seemed so proud over their partnership with Bing. Then why make the "Powered by Bing" so small? Why not link to Bing also? Is Yahoo ashamed that they failed at core search?
