It’s Tues, so you’d better believe you’re getting some news. Thanks again for stopping by in an effort to better yourself with vital information, pertinent to the search engines. The next time you find yourself at a black tie function discussing Internet current events, you can thank the Tues News for your newfound nuggets of wisdom. Let’s take a look at those nuggets, shall we?

  • The big story this week is that Jerry “Chief Yahoo” Yang is out as CEO of the company he helped to create. As a result, Yahoo stock is up, rumors of a Microsoft takeover are reemerging, and the search for a new leader is beginning. The board has spoken and it sure seems like the days of an independent Yahoo are numbered.
  • YouTube is awesome. There is no doubt about that. However, it’s much more awesome, to date, as a vehicle for time wasting than as a driver of revenue. Never before has this been more obvious than when it was announced that Hulu will soon catch YouTube in total revenue. When you look at the difference between Hulu and YouTube in terms of traffic, it is nearly impossible to imagine that the revenue numbers could ever be similar, but that’s what the newsman says!
  • Sign up to hear Eric Schmidt tell you what’s on the horizon. Why? Because when the man who runs the company that runs the world speaks, you’d better listen! Heck, even if you don’t don’t care what Google’s CEO has to say, there is probably a lot of good info in there that would be great for chit chat at that black tie party I was talking about!

Okay, so maybe search engine marketing isn’t the best topic for your next social gathering, but if you’re hanging out with me, I’m all ears! Until that time, thanks for stopping by. Read up on and keep up with the online world; keep reading Tues News! Catch ya later!

    I’ve been fascinated by the Yahoo news since Microsoft made their initial unsolicited offer earlier this year. I’m curious to see who is going to take over this mess, with possible names being thrown around like Meg Whitman and Peter Chernin. It doesn’t surprise me that Hulu has caught up to YouTube in revenue, their business plan was to monetize their videos while YouTube’s original intention was to have high traffic numbers. However, I feel it’s only a matter of time before Google figures out a way to extract maximum profit from their $1.6 billion baby.

    Yahoo! didn’t even show up to webmaster world this year in vegas…no booth at least there was one guy defending them in the smackdown, but as always matt cutts from google dominated, with a flying leap from the turnbuckle to end it.

    I love the Hulu shout-out. I’m a fan and I’m rooting for them to put YouTube in it’s place.
