The financial comparisons between Google and Yahoo don’t seem to consider a lot of small numbers that in sum may become quite large. Yahoo is building Ad Network Distribution combining Yahoo Search and Yahoo Partners but many of these Partners appear to be Spam sites stuffed with Keywords. I’ve seen this Partner revenue reach 80% of total revenue. Do I hear refunds? These numbers seem to indicate that Yahoo’s reported revenue should be discounted. And Google, by comparison, will be that much stronger allowing Sergey Brin to spread democracy in China. Good luck!
