" If, indeed, Internet has to offer much to which knows what it seeks, the same Internet is quite as able to supplement the degradation of those and those which navigate there without compass. " Laurent Laplante " Being unaware of by abuse information " (French quotation).
With the permanent danger, underlined in this quotation, which cunningly watches for the ingenuous Net surfer who would have ventured without guide in this labyrinth of information, certain people were put in search to draw up a precise card of this new world.
Indeed, in a few years only, Internet became a planetary space of information, whose borders are increasingly pushed back towards the infinite one. Internet, is neither more nor less than one vast maze of sites, and, consequently to find what one seeks, without any assistance, without any guide, concerns the Utopia. Fortunately, after having explored and having included/understood this new world, the Christophe Colomb of the Web touched ground, and were devoted to the realization of a great project which was going to open the gates of Internet to us.
This key, fruit of long reflexion and working hours, exists from now on and bears the name enthusiaste of Yahoo!
In a few words, Yahoo is a directory which facilitates our search on Internet, enabling us to find in some clics information or the desired site. It is probably the starting point of any initial Net surfer, but also an invaluable help for the informed Net surfers who seek precise information. True catalogue of sites, Yahoo gives us access instantaneously to all the richnesses of the Web.
The instructions of this site are diverting of simplicity, and allow 2 types of search: on the one hand the search that one could describe as " direct ", and who addresses oneself to the one or the ones that knows exactly what they want. This operation requires the use of the tool of keyword search. For example, the person who would wish to have information on Heineken (why not!) has to only type, within the framework reserved for this effect, the word Heineken. In a few seconds, Yahoo thus makes an inventory of all the sites or articles which contain this word, and proposes a precise and thematic list which deals with this subject. In addition, " adventurous " search relates to those which have only one vague idea of what they seek. To help them, they have the double possibility of using either the preceding tool, or to be useful itself of search by topic, which could be connected with a genealogical search.
In all the cases, the tools placed at the disposal are diverting of simplicity. In other words, I believe that Yahoo is a digest of all the techniques and the forms of information which one has the right to wait on behalf of a directory of search. Its assets are its simplicity of use, its speed and especially its precision in search, with a classification by topics.
The second principal asset of this site are the varied and practical options available. For example, all the last news of the topicality is immediately available on this site, thanks to a close and effective collaboration with other great sites devoted to information. But Yahoo proposes also, and in bulk, of the plays, the possibility of making biddings, of putting a small advertisement on line, of sending malls, etc... In short, this site is remarkable by its richness and the quality of the options which it proposes... without forgetting that all this remains completely free.
Thus, simplicity, the quality of search, and the practical character of this site make of it in my eyes the essential tool for surfer effectively and quickly on the Net.
Good stuff. I think you covered everything, ever, you could write about for yahoo.com..... Not that that's a bad thing!!! :)
