Yahoo Ready to Ditch Google


Yahoo has given one of its strongest indications yet that it will soon end its reliance on Google. Yahoo Australia, search producer, Peter Crowe revealed that the company had started testing Inktomi’s search engine in parallel with projects at a number of the company’s regional portals to see if it provides a viable alternative to Google’s crawler-based search engine.

Yahoo’s agreement with Google isn’t due to expire until late 2004, but according to Crowe its contract with the search provider doesn’t contain any exclusivity clauses.
