YAHOO has updated their main home page according to this story in Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

Tech analyst Jeff Kagan provides comment on this story.

“This story is much more than just an updated home page for Yahoo! This is about a massive reinvention and rebranding of Yahoo! This is about paving a new path to success. This is about changing the way the marketplace sees Yahoo. It's about the future of Yahoo, which is very different than the past,” says Jeff Kagan Industry Analyst.

“This is big news for Yahoo. So why launch it in this weak way? Yahoo has been around forever. It was one of the first search engines, years and years before the word Google was rolling around on anyone's tongue,” adds Analyst Kagan.

“While Yahoo was a leader prior to Google, it has taken a back seat over the last decade. Lost in the wilderness of the web. This reinvention of the Yahoo home page is the biggest step yet for Marissa Mayer as CEO to reinvent the company. I like what she is doing at the company. However this is only one step of many. And each has to be launched the right way. What I really don't understand is why this announcement is so understated. Maybe they are just laying the groundwork for the new Yahoo. If so they are missing an incredible opportunity,” says Kagan.

“There is a basic success rule that was missed here. Generate excitement and electricity. Visualize yourself where you want to be. Then think and act that way from this moment forward. Then when the marketplace looks around and sees you talking and acting like a new company it will say, 'Oh, that's who Yahoo is now?' Then it rushes to catch up to the new Yahoo. It's an incredible way the world works,” says Kagan.
