yahoo.com and yahoo.co.uk

AdvantagesGood search results, loads of content.

DisadvantagesPromotion can be a bit long winded, possible bugs with SMS alerts.

"For years I never liked Yahoo, I have no really logical explanation for this, I think it was because it was difficult if not impossible to do automatic promotions to the site. However with "age and maturity" I now feel that their policy of a "human being" reviewing each submission is better than the unknown policies of many of the other search engines! Searching results are accurate and precise as a result, some of the best most appropriate ..." Read review

AdvantagesFast

DisadvantagesIrrelevant sites come up

"I have an email address with Yahoo and use their site to search for websites. The search engine is fairly fast, but always comes up with far too many results; many of which are very irrelevant to what I actually want to find. I think there should be more catagories found per keyword and less websites found. For instance if I wanted to find out a site about UK Garage music and I put in "garage" then instead of thousands of websites mostly irrelevant ..." Read review

My homepage

Advantages

Disadvantages

"I like yahoo due to the fact that its really easy to use and you can normally find what you want on it. I signed up with ntl but found there homepage to be dreadful so I use yahhoo as my homepage. Its got a really good selection of links and the news service is excellent. The search engine is a bit slow and cimbersome to use till you get the hang of it -all the subsections can be a bit daunting at first but if you look carefully you usually find whay ..." Read review

The internet backbone.

AdvantagesTotally full of everything needed.

DisadvantagesNot any I can think of...

"Yahoo! I've found it! Yahoo is the best place on the net to get what you want, it has excellent categories and great sub-categories. Yahoo has merged with google.com so they have control of advanced searchs, I did prefer the old layout for this part but it's growing on me and I like the way it looks for them. Yahoo! also has other features, like it's own mail - a service similar to hotmail, chat - one of the best chat servers available, shopping ..." Read review

My favourite

AdvantagesEasy to use and easy on the eyes

DisadvantagesNot very many pictures on this site

"...to it later. On Yahoo.com you can also make up an email address for yourself using yourname@yahoo.com, etc. There is also a chat page where celebs can chat too and news, weather, all the usual stuff. It's very good though, detailed, factual and objective, not too many pics or too much writing. This site is great!!! ..." Read review

My choice of search engine

AdvantagesEasy to use, popular

DisadvantagesNot good for really specific search

"I have been using Yahoo as my search engine for all sorts of purposes. And I rate this search engine as the best compared to other search engine in the Internet. Being the first search engine and the most original one, I have been using it for years. I always used Yahoo search engine as a first place to look for information regarding my research. Apart from that, I always search in Yahoo to find the specific companies websites, for example: I search ..." Read review

The first and still the best! Yahoo

AdvantagesGot everything you need in one site, Excellent - Lightening fast, Complete information in the world,

DisadvantagesNone

"Yahoo is one of the first 'portals' on the Internet and it has always retained its position as the best. And it is also one of the fastest sites out there. Over the many years of my Internet usage Yahoo has become my own personalized Internet. Be it email, search, chat, calendar, instant messaging, an address book, bookmarks, file storage, photo storage, notepad or just news, Yahoo has everything that I need to exploit the full power of the Net ..."

Interesting

AdvantagesInteresting

DisadvantagesSlow e-mail

"Yahoo is most impressive. As long as you remember to state that you are looking for something in the UK then you will be ok. You do have to be exact with what you are looking for. I like it much better than Alta Vista and it's quite quick. The e-mail appears to be very long and drawn out. Compared with AOL, it is very slow in loading. Not a bad sight and worth checking out. But there are a lot better sights out there. Ask Jeeves is boring and ..." Read review
