Could the Sale of Yahoo become the Next Google

Could the sale of Yahoo be the Next Google

When we think about who the next Google or Face­book might be, we’re usu­al­ly con­sid­er­ing star­tups, fledg­ling com­pa­nies, or even ideas that haven’t been prop­er­ly trans­lat­ed into busi­ness­es yet. It’s not often that “the next big thing” is actu­al­ly an old thing that just still exists. The prover­bial phoenix from the ash­es. And if some­one said that the sale of Yahoo could become this phoenix yet to rise, I would have laughed out loud. Until recent­ly, any­way. Yahoo has been in steady decline for years, and even though Maris­sa May­er seemed a promis­ing sav­ior for the floun­der­ing for­mer online king of the hill, she was­n’t able to bear the weight of the sink­ing ship. Okay, maybe not sink­ing, but Yahoo isn’t exact­ly gain­ing in pop­u­lar­i­ty either. It’s float­ing around with its head above water, unable to fig­ure out how to move for­ward. Work­ing at Yahoo is still con­sid­ered pres­ti­gious, but not like work­ing at Google. Cus­tomers aren’t leav­ing in droves, but they are leav­ing. They have assets and infra­struc­ture, what they need is a vision and some guid­ance. So it was­n’t a huge sur­prise when May­er announced back in Feb­ru­ary that Yahoo would be lay­ing off 15% of the jobs at Yahoo and auc­tion­ing…

Yahoo snaffles mobile advertising startup AdMovate in quest to revamp its mobile presence

Read­ers in mobile adver­tis­ing media jobs who are famil­iar with these pages will be aware that we tend to favor news about up and com­ing lit­tle com­pa­nies, rather than Adland’s big­ger jun­gle beasts. But today, we find our­selves bring­ing news of both types of crit­ter: hun­gry giant gob­bles young fledg­ling. Well, Yahoo acquires start­up mobile adver­tis­ing tech spe­cial­ist AdMo­vate, to be more pre­cise. The search leviathan has moved to pur­chase the start­up just a day or so after reveal­ing that around 340 mobile users now engage with Yahoo every sin­gle month. So media jobs vet­er­ans work­ing in mobile adver­tis­ing agen­cies will doubt­less agree that the acqui­si­tion kin­da makes sense. A warm wel­come Yahoo’s SVP of dis­play adver­tis­ing and adver­tis­ing tech­nol­o­gy, Scott Burke, could hard­ly con­ceal his jubi­la­tion. He states, “AdMo­vate has cre­at­ed sophis­ti­cat­ed tech­nol­o­gy that helps mar­keters reach their desired audi­ence at the right time and place. This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant for mobile ad expe­ri­ences that engage con­sumers on small­er screens.” He went on, “This acqui­si­tion is part of our efforts to invest fur­ther in our ad tech plat­forms — Apt, Genome, and Right Media — and make buy­ing eas­i­er for adver­tis­ers and agen­cies. AdMo­vate’s per­son­al­iza­tion tech­nol­o­gy accel­er­ates our capa­bil­i­ties…

Marissa Mayer Snaps Up Stamped and a Raft of Celebrity Backers Can’t be Wrong

Why would Maris­sa May­er buy Stamped only to elim­i­nate its prod­ucts? Stamped is an app start­up that’s run by sev­er­al of her old Google chums. Since tak­ing over the reins at Yahoo back in July, spec­u­la­tion has been rife on what Mayer’s first pur­chase will be, and now all of those who have been wait­ing with bait­ed breath for her to get the check book out can rest easy as the deed has final­ly been done. Those look­ing for media jobs will no doubt see oppor­tu­ni­ties increase in the clam­our as star­tups shout to get their share of the Yahoo purse. Who or What is Stamped? Stamped is a mobile and web app that allows users to share and keep track of the things they like such as restau­rants, books, shops, films and oth­er apps. Users can access the rec­om­men­da­tions of their friends and those of the so-called ‘tastemak­ers’ – key influ­encers that include top chef Mario Balati (who is an advi­sor to the com­pa­ny), and film crit­ic Peter Tra­vers. Instead of rat­ing a book, restau­rant or film with a star rat­ing or feed­back, you sim­ply ‘stamp’ the item to show your approval. As a user grows their social con­nec­tions,…

With $6 Billion to Hire People Yahoo May be a Goldmine

With a new CEO at the helm, Yahoo’s plans for the $4 bil­lion it gained with the sale of Aliba­ba may be chang­ing. This is good news for new tal­ent, but bad news for share­hold­ers. In May, Yahoo announced that the $4 bil­lion it received from sell­ing 20 per­cent of its stake in its Chi­nese assets would go to the share­hold­ers. In ear­ly August Maris­sa May­er, the company’s brand-new CEO, indi­cat­ed she may have oth­er plans for the funds as she seeks to imple­ment her growth plan for Yahoo. This could mean that Yahoo, with its exist­ing $2 bil­lion in cash, could have $6 bil­lion with which to hire new tal­ent. Care­ful Review Lead­ing to Dras­tic Changes When she came on board as CEO three weeks ago, Ms. May­er began a care­ful review of the company’s strat­e­gy and exist­ing assets. What she found is that the com­pa­ny is strug­gling. The 2011 year end­ed with a 21 per­cent decline in rev­enue, accord­ing to Voice&Data. When she took her posi­tion as CEO, May­er had approx­i­mate­ly $2 bil­lion in cash to work with. An hon­est look at where Yahoo stands and her own goals for the future led May­er to reverse the company’s…

A New Future For Yahoo? What’s The Deal With Marissa Mayer?

Yahoo

Five chief execs in three years is not a stat to be proud of, but has Yahoo found the answer to its busi­ness woes in the shape of new CEO and Google turn­coat Maris­sa May­er? The tur­bu­lence expe­ri­enced by Yahoo over the past few years looks set to con­tin­ue a lit­tle while longer after the sur­prise appoint­ment of for­mer Google exec May­er as its new CEO. While most peo­ple could be for­giv­en for think­ing that this time the job might land in the lap of long-suf­fer­­ing inter­im CEO Ross Levin­sohn, it seems the board had oth­er ideas. As May­er walked in the door, Levin­sohn walked out. With­out the expe­ri­ence and con­tact book of Levin­sohn its felt that May­er might strug­gle to make her mark – par­tic­u­lar­ly as she lacks the adver­tis­ing know-how of her pre­de­ces­sor and that cer­tain­ly seems to be where the sector’s head­ed. Unique and inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts are great, but you need to make mon­ey to devel­op them and that’s where the adver­tis­ing dol­lars count. Indus­try Expe­ri­ence No one can deny that May­er has the cre­den­tials. She was one of only 20 employ­ees when she joined Google in 1999 as their first female engi­neer and dur­ing her tenure…
