What a day (SEO related)

Well it has been an interesting day for those of us who spend our days looking at the results pumped out by search engines. Firstly the deal between Yahoo! and Bing, I've been thinking for a long time that a company with the money and power of Microsoft won't simply sit back and take it.

Microsoft want in on search, this is the company that once underestimated how the internet would penetrate into daily life but boy did it come back! With Internet Explorer dominant in the market these days having smashed the hold Netscape once had. As SEOs we need to watch this with interest!

As with all things media hype is ahead of the curve - it will be a couple of years at least before this deal hits the streets. A huge amount of change needs to happen first (regulators need to pass the deal, technology integration between Yahoo! and Bing etc.

And for those who say it'll never happen... Check out this in F1 I'm looking forward to seeing Hamilton Vs Schumacher!
