Microsoft and Yahoo have had “informal talks” about merging their web search tools, according to searchenginewatch.com. This is big news, not because of the potentially better searching, but because there’s actually a website called SearchEngineWatch, and it has a blog. Someone thought it was necessary to make a site devoted to search engine news, as though people might care. All anyone needs to know about searching is GOOGLE.
I know I’ll be bookmarking the site and checking back daily, just in case some major searching development comes along of which I need to be aware. They have a forum too, so we can all go chat about searching online!
