Yahoo!. Yahoo Inc. is a mega internet company founded by Jerry Yang and David Filo in January 1994. The company is base in California, USA. Currently the top management are David Filo (Chief Yahoo), Maynard Webb (Chairman) a former Google important people  and Marissa Mayer (CEO).

Yahoo which originally called as ‘Jerry and David’s guide to the World Wide Web has started as Web Directory which over the times expand to be globally known for it Search Engine, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messengers, News, Finance and many more. It has turned itself as Digital Library and indeed, dominating the internet world quite some times back. In general from various sources, near 700 Million people visit Yahoo website every month.

Interestingly, not many know about what does Yahoo name represent. The word  Yahoo” is actually acronym to “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle”. That being said, the founder Jerry Yang and David Filo has reported to inform that they like its slang definition : “rude, unsophisticated, uncouth.”

There has been rumours about Yahoo lost it’s domination to Google. We believe that, Yahoo still has momentum left to bounce back again, someday.
