Squidoo

All about build lens !
Why, here from their FAQ :

Share the knowledge: When you know a lot about something, it feels good to share. Help other people discover what you found out the hard way.

Increase your profile: A popular lens gives credibility to the Lensmaster. A popular lens reinforces your role as an "everyday expert." And a popular lens makes you the go-to authority for those looking for help.

Increase your traffic: Your lens points (if you want it to) to your blog and to your website. Lenses have huge credibility with search engines, so your lens can help your other sites rise to the top of Google searches.

Earn a royalty for you, your organization, or your favorite charity. Think of the royalty as a bonus--and don't quit your dayjob yet! A single lens might not earn a lot, but if you imagine hundreds of lenses working to your favor, or fundraising for a charity, it can really start to add up.

Yahoo!

Do you Yahoo!? must be familiar phrase for most of net user. This tagline is part of more than 81s Trademark Information (just visit here). Different with Google (the simplest one), Yahoo!'s frontpage was made attractive interface up. So, just visit its frontpage then you'll know the entire services soon.

As you know, Yahoo! was crushed many time by Google excellent. This article (July 21th, 2006) noted that "The search leader processed almost 2.67 billion queries, or 49.4 percent of June's total, and Yahoo followed in a distant second place".
Even as Paul R. La Monica (
CNNMoney.com editor) noted here , we can know that there is notable Google's threat from "Google's move into video and other forms of display advertising", Why? since that's an area where Google's top rival, Yahoo! itself, has had more success". Furthermore, the delayed announcement of its (Yahoo!) new online search system for advertisers, code-named Panama, impact on Yahoo's shares tumbling 22 percent in one day. Just visit Yahoo vs. google, round two for further related interesting issues.

An pro-Yahoo! opinion came from Marshall Kirkpatrick that noted "Google’s local search is pretty good, and I appreciate the reviews they pull in, but Yahoo! functionality appears to have taken the lead" (here).

But, hey, let's just enjoying Yahoo! services for ordinary net user like us. Btw, did you know that Yahoo! has launched its Yahoo! Publishing Network (a Google AdSense like)? For those live in US, it's nice to register asap.

Ok, don't miss the Yahoo! Career for both new graduates or internship. And Talent Scouting. There are 16s current opening positions for Yahoo!7 (Ausse n New Zealand).

Iterested in knowing Yahoo! values? Share me the different with Google's one.
