Yahoo Earnings Call: Search Revs Up 11 Percent In Q4; Still Not Selling (Yet)

image Analysts were expecting Yahoo’s search revenues to hold up in Q4, despite the market’s implosion, and they did:

— Owned & Operated search revenue came in at $436 million, up 11 percent year-over-year, but down slightly from $438 million the previous quarter.
— Query volume was up 10 percent; revenue per search (RPS) grew in the “mid-single digits,” though the company didn’t disclose the exact number.

On beating Microsoft right now: Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) is a distant second to Google (NSDQ: GOOG) in terms of search market share — but it’s still ahead of Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT).
