SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) – Bing will start powering Internet searches at Yahoo! web pages in North America this week as the technology firms combine forces to take on Google.
"Later this week, we will begin transitioning the back-end technology for Yahoo! Search in the US and Canada (English) over to the Microsoft platform," Yahoo! search product operations vice president Shashi Seth said in a blog post.
"Keep an eye out for the 'Powered by Bing' indicator at the bottom of our search results page, which will indicate that you are viewing listings from Microsoft."
