Historical Facts & Figures
The two developers of Yahoo,
David Filo and Jerry Yang, Ph.D. (Stanford University), started their guide in
April 1994 as a way to keep track of their personal interests on the Internet.
Before long they found that their home-brewed lists were becoming too long and
unwieldy. Gradually they began to spend more and more time working on Yahoo (and
now they are rich). During 1994 they converted Yahoo into a customized database
to serve the thousands of users that began to use the service through the closely
bound Internet community. In November 1994 there were 170,000 visitors each day.
In 1998 they were getting 26 million visitors per month. Yahoo net revenue in
1998 was $203 million and in September 1999 they were averaging 385 million page
views per day.
