Yahoo Axes AltaVista Search Engine

Before Google,  AltaVista was the original web search engine and after a long series of ownership changes it ended up in the hands of Yahoo. However, instead of continuing to push its search results and advertising through AltaVista, Yahoo is ending the search platform. As of today anyone that lands on the site will be redirected to the Yahoo. This is most likely to source more traffic to Yahoo’s main site in hopes of increasing its search dominance.

Bing Search Boost Klout Scores

The number of times someone searches for a brand or person on Bing will now influence Klout scores. Since Klout is traditionally a social media rating system, incorporating web search results is a step in a new innovative direction.

Baidu Pushes Mobile

As the leading search engine in China, Baidu gives Google a run for its users when it comes to the Asian population. Competing Asian search engines are battling to catch up with Baidu and this is why the company is now heavily investing in its mobile platform. Unfortunately, this might not be much help for Baidu in its North American search engine market shares.
