Google’s Marissa Mayer Tapped As Yahoo’s New CEO
[ Business]

Marissa Mayer, the youngest member of Google’s executive team, has just become the CEO of Yahoo!.

Yahoo! just announced Mayer as President, CEO, and board member of the company. Yahoo! had been shopping around for a new CEO for a while, and the last two names to be attached to the position were interim CEO Ross Levinsohn and Hulu head Jason Kilar. Kilar dropped out of the running by declining to be considered – so many assumed that Levinsohn would just continue on as permanent head of the company.

“I am honored and delighted to lead Yahoo!, one of the internet’s premier destinations for more than 700 million users. I look forward to working with the Company’s dedicated employees to bring innovative products, content, and personalized experiences to users and advertisers all around the world,” said Mayer.

Mayer was the first female engineer at Google, coming aboard as the company’s 20th employee in 1999. As of late, Mayer had been heading up maps ann location services for Google.

Mayer resigned her position at Google today and will begin work at Yahoo! on Tuesday.

    It is good to see that Yahoo has some new leadership. With the right leadership they have incredible potential success, beyond what they have now.

    This is a strategic move that Google is concocting to terminate the Bing search and advertising contract and have Yahoo integrate Google search results and AdWords contextual and display ads. This will increase Google’s overall search market share by 12% putting Google at an 88% market share. This a no brainier for Yahoo as the #1 search term currently is “Google”. A lot of search traffic is bouncing off of Yahoo and going to Google and now they will be able to keep that traffic within Yahoo SERPS pages generating more ad revenue for Yahoo. Both companies are going to start calaberating on other products as well giving both companies huge advantages and increased revenue on all all business models. +Google integration for all Yahoo mail users wil also help Google increase their social network userbase. I can go on and on, watch how in the next couple of quarters both companies stock will increase in value dramaticlly. This an behind the curtain aquisition that will not need any FTC approve as both companies will be partner as seperate entities. I will end my tangent here as I can go on all night thinking of way to integrate both compnies and still operate them seperately. There is a saying that goes, “If you can’t beat them join them” and that exactly what Yahoo has in mind.
