As you can see from this link here, Yahoo remains king of the jungle for a number of sectors including finance, news and even sports. It’s true that they are not monetizing as effectively as they should be, it should still be noted that Yahoo is still worth enough for Microsoft to make yet another pass at them.
Will we eventually see Microsoft buying Yahoo? I believe so, considering Yahoo has one thing Bing has yet to build up just yet – traffic and users. Clearly, Yahoo is ahead of that game thus far.
