      Got source?

      How much do they intend to buy it for?

      It would have to be in the billions.

      Maybe we can take up a collection and buy it as a HubPage Author Co-op. Then we can have our hubs come in at number 1 for a Yahoo search for our chosen keywords.

    MS had their own contextual based advertising service. I haven't tried it, but from what I understand, it's never done all that well. So I suppose if MS buys Yahoo, one of two things will happen:

    1. Yahoo will make the MS contextual ad service better.
    2. MS will ruin Yahoo's contextual based ad system.

    Only time will tell.

      Not rational: if they buy yahoo it's for their branding. On the contrary they will dumb MSN and focus on Yahoo.

        I'm not saying they'll intentionally ruin the Yahoo Contextual Advertisement business. My point is that so far they haven't been able to manage a successful contextual business of their own. I'm just saying that one of the many possibilities would be that MS could mess up the good thing that Yahoo has going.

        I don't think that Yahoo has much of a choice. MS wants to buy the company in stock, at a 60% premium over the current price. Sounds like if MS wants the company, they can get it.

    $44.6 billion

    I may have a spare .6

    But it's only got one zero behind it I'm afraid.

    Actually, a couple of weeks back I was talking to  guy who works for the SEO that Yahoo hired to get its own pages up its own search results for its own chosen keywords ...

    So buying it wouldn't help us get our Hubs up there, apparently.

    We'd be better off buying this SEO company wink

    Microsoft also owns MSN and it's never made money, so they say.

    I saw something not so long ago (no idea where now) that suggested Yahoo was going to boost its payouts for affiliates using its ads in an attempt to get adsense users to defect.

    Don't think that worked.

    However, take a look at alexa.com - yahoo is #1, above google, and if you merged it with msn.com and windows live (#3 & #4) who knows?

    They'll have to do something special to get people away from adsense, and that can only benefit the website owners.
