Yahoo to enhance the search experience
A representative for Yahoo added that there was nothing more to share at this time. It is important to point out that Yahoo already has a renewed Microsoft deal that requires it to post Bing ads in at least 51% of the search results. In April, the two companies revised their partnership which allowed Bing to be Yahoo’s exclusive search provider. But Yahoo now has the right to use other search providers for the remaining 49% of searches. There is also the possibility the tech companies could completely dissolve their partnership by the latter part of this year.
