A Yahoo and Bing merger is a strategy to fight Google in the Search Engine Market. However, Google has had much headway despite of the concerns from respected technology heads that it is channeling spam messages through their search engine. However, Google has responded to these claims through a post on their Official Google Blog. With many players gunning for the top seat in the search engine market we are left to wonder if their will be any more mergers. What do you think about MyBlogLog’s discontinuation and how does it affect the search engine market. Post a comment below:
