YAHOO Directory: No more
Before Google, there was Yahoo (Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle). Time was when internet searches were done by scrolling through lists that were organized by topics, by real people!. Did you know that? Imagine! At the time, it was the equivalent of Google of today. It was possible to do that back then due to the fact that internet in the early 90s wasn't anything like today (size-wise). During that time, it would take months for websites to be listed, and could technically disappear if editor changed key keywords and description.
Then in 1998, Google came on the scene with a more precise algorithm, and by 2002, Yahoo realized how much better Google algorithm was, which was the beginning of the S-L-O-W death of Yahoo.
It was recently announced by Yahoo that there will be no more Yahoo Directory. So long, Yahoo Directory. Click here for full details.
