YAHOO!

Yahoo! was founded in 1994 by Stanford Ph.D. students, David Filo and Jerry Yang, and it began as their hobby. Yahoo! is also the most recognized and valuable Internet brand globally, reaching over 237 million unique users in 25 countries and 13 languages.

Yahoo! offers free 4 MG of e-mail storage. Yahoo! also offers IMVironments which are instant messaging environments that are interactive, themed backgrounds. Messenger conversations appear directly in the instant messaging window under their messenger icon. Other Yahoo! icons at the top include Personalize, Finance, Shop and Help.

This is a very busy home page with many, many links. Besides the icons at the top of this home page, Yahoo! has additional sections for Personal Assistant, Shopping, In the News and Entertainment - on the right side. Then on the left side of Yahoo!'s home page, are groupings by topic such as Shop, Find, Connect, Organize, Fun and Info. There is a section near the middle that is for travel information. At the bottom of Yahoo!'s home page is a web site directory listings by subject. Then comes a section of local Yahoo! by countries and cities. Next comes More Yahoo! with even more links to different general topics. There is also an advance search option near the bottom of the page. If you do a search and do not find the information, a page appears asking you if you want to try another search engine.

There is a place to submit a site. It says that Yahoo! is made up of 14 main subject headings, or top level categories: Arts and Humanities, Business and Economy, Computers and Internet, Education, Entertainment, Government, Health, News and Media, Recreation and Sports, Reference, Regional, Science, Social Science, and Society and Culture. Every site listed by Yahoo! is contained somewhere within these 14 major categories. There is no charge to submit a web site for nonprofit organizations and personal web sites. This is a charge for commercial web sites.

According to New York-based Internet research firm Jupiter Media Metrix, Yahoo! was the third most popular Web media property in April. It did not list how many pages were indexed for this site.
