There’s a interesting post over at the Shoemoney blog where Jeremy Shoemaker gives 10 reasons why he believes Microsoft will make a move to purchase Yahoo.

Keeping the 10 reasons Shoemoney gave short and sweet, they are;

  1. The Search Algorithm
  2. Overture Yahoo Search Marketing
  3. Yahoo Publisher Network
  4. Flikr
  5. Del.icio.us
  6. The People
  7. Video
  8. Community Properties
  9. Business Directory
  10. Yahoo Just Cleaned The House (reshuffle)

Will it happen? To me it seems like a no brainer… If Microsoft hopes to compete in this new internet economy (contextual ads) they need a bigger chunk of the search market. Yahoo is the only option IMO.

What do we think?
