Google Took Different Approaches Than Yahoo

Consistent management team focused on technology and ad business fueled Google’s expertise and eventual success

In early 2000, Yahoo Inc. stood at the internet’s pinnacle, commanding the world’s most trafficked website and a $125 billion market value. Around that time, an upstart called Google was emerging as a destination for search.

Today, Google parent Alphabet Inc. is the world’s second most valuable company with a market value of $516 billion and a profit last year of $16.35 billion. Yahoo, which posted a $4.36 billion loss last year, agreed to be acquired by Verizon Communications Inc. on Monday for $4.8 billion.

A number of factors led to their diverging fates, but at the core of Google’s triumph over Yahoo has been a consistent management team that focused relentlessly on technology serving its massive online-advertising business. Yahoo, by contrast, vacillated across six chief executives who often emphasized content over the technology itself, leading to a blur of business models.
