    It’s strange indeed…Yahoo does not promote his Search Engine in the Netherlands…

  2. Very interesting Paul, especially the lack of public awareness of “Live”.

    From the same report;
    Public Awareness
    Google 99% (+1)
    Ilse 89% (=0)
    Live.nl (before MSN Search) 42% (-29)
    Yahoo! 72% (=0)
    Lycos 68% (+1)

    Very interesting trends – the public awareness of Ilse has always been amazing compared to the “big boys” of Yahoo! and Microsoft.
    Very interesting to see as well that Google keeps growing terrain – looking forward to see the results of the next market research, and how Live develops.

    It’s expected to see a raise in awareness and use of Live as Microsoft markets the product and people slowly become aware of the transition.

  3. That looks like a pretty good result for Yahoo to me – I guess the team there will be pleased!
