We’re sick of seeing Yahoo employees with Google on their home pages !

Caterina pointed me to a ValleyWag posting with this title:

Searching across the tracks: We’re sick of seeing Yahoo employees with Google on their home pages

Amr Homepage

They were referring to my homepage which does feature a search box for Google Scholar. Well, I did mention in a previous blog of mine that I love Google Scholar and unfortunately Yahoo does not have an equivalent product. Note that ValleyWag later on made another blog posting acknowledging my google miss prediction (sorry, cant help but keep rubbing it in 🙂 )

I have to admit that this is not the only Google Search Box that I use. I have a side family business for Egypt and on that site I use the Google Adsense Search Box. Even though Yahoo does have an equivalent search box, it does not pay me a share of the revenue for the searches the site generates (btw, SpiffY!Search is an even cooler implementation of an in-page yahoo search box).

Egypt

 Hopefully one day yahoo will offer competitive products and I will switch right away.

PS: Egypt Football (aka Soccer) team won the African Cup yesterday, 1000 congrats.
