Yahoo! Products and Services for Business Owners
Yahoo was founded in 1994 by Stanford Ph.D. students David Filo and Jerry Yang. Yahoo! began as a simple hobby and has evolved into a leading global brand that has changed the way people communicate with each other, conduct transactions and access, share, and create information. Yahoo! Inc. has become a large global online network of integrated services with more than 500 million users worldwide. The company is physically headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, with a presence in more than 20 markets and regions around the globe.
Yahoo has struggled in recent years due to competition from Google and Microsoft, but is slowly beginning to rebuild their market presence. They are trying to remain competitive by acquiring more cutting edge start-up companies in hopes of diversifying their product offering, while continuing to strengthen their current products and services. Many have wondered whether Microsoft would buy the company to expand their search capabilities to become more competitive with Google. However, that scenario has not yet played out. Microsoft and Yahoo have certainly strengthened their business relationship in recent years, but no merger, yet.
UPDATE: In July 2016, Verizon announced that it purchased the company for $4.83 billion and plans to merge
