SE Wars Heat Up

Posted on 9.13.2006
Announcements from Google and Yahoo show that the already competitive search space is heating up.
In a strategic multiyear distribution deal Yahoo will feature its Internet search services on ACER PCs (the fourth largest PC maker). The start page (featuring Yahoo products and service) will automatically appear when an Acer customer opens a Web browser on a new laptop or desktop computer. Yahoo also announced the release of a prototype web-based e-mail servive featuring some slick "Web 2.0" technology.
Yahoo rival Google Inc. announced a competing deal in which Web search and advertising services will be featured on QuickBooks software from Intuit Inc. aimed at small business users. In the past few months, Google entered into deals with major PC makers such as Dell Inc., software makers like Adobe Systems Inc. and media giants like News Corp..
What does this mean to you as a someone interested in Web success? More opportunities - across the board.
