[[File:Jerry Yang and David Filo.jpg|thumb|Jerry Yang and David Filo, the founders of Yahoo!]]
 
In January 1994, Jerry Yang and David Filo were electrical engineering graduate students at [[Stanford University]] when they created a website named "Jerry and David's Guide to the World Wide Web".<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.techbebo.com |title=The History of Yahoo! - How It All Started... |publisher=Yahoo! Media Relations |accessdate=8 December 2010 }}</ref> David and Jerry's Guide to the World Wide Web was a directory of other websites, organized in a hierarchy, as opposed to a searchable index of pages. In April 1994, "David and Jerry's Guide to the World Wide Web" was renamed "Yahoo!".<ref>{{cite book |title=Blueprint to a Billion |author=David G. Thomson |page=155 |publisher=[[Wiley-Interscience]] |year=2006 |isbn=978-0-471-77918-6}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|author=Ethan Trex |url=http://blogs.static.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/22707.html |title=Jerry and David's Guide to the World Wide Web becomes Yahoo! |publisher=Blogs.static.mentalfloss.com |date= |accessdate=2010-08-24}}</ref> The yahoo.com domain was created on January 18, 1995.<ref>{{cite web |title=WHOIS information for: yahoo.com: |url=http://whois.net/whois_new.cgi?d=yahoo&tld=com |publisher=whois.net |accessdate=2008-11-08}}</ref> The word is an [[acronym]] for "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle."<ref>{{cite web |title=The History of Yahoo! - How it all started... |url=http://docs.yahoo.com/info/misc/history.html |publisher=yahoo.com |accessdate=2011-09-15}}</ref> The term "hierarchical" described how the Yahoo! database was arranged in directory layers. The term "oracle" was intended to mean "source of truth and wisdom," and "officious", rather than being related in any way to the meaning of the word, described the many office workers who would use the Yahoo! database while surfing from work.<ref>{{cite web |title=What Does 'Yahoo' Stand For? |url=http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/internet101/f/yahoostory.htm |publisher=about.com |accessdate=2011-09-15}}</ref> However, Filo and Yang insist they mainly selected the name because they liked the slang definition of a "yahoo" (used by college students in David Filo's native Louisiana in the late 1980s and early 1990s to refer to an unsophisticated, rural Southerner): "rude, unsophisticated, uncouth." Filo's college girlfriend often referred to Filo as a "yahoo." This meaning derives from the name of a race of [[Yahoo (Gulliver's Travels)|fictional beings from ''Gulliver's Travels'']].
 
 
Yahoo! grew rapidly throughout the 1990s. Like many [[search engine]]s and [[web directory|web directories]], Yahoo! diversified into a [[web portal]]. It also made many high-profile acquisitions. Its stock price skyrocketed during the [[dot-com bubble]], Yahoo! stocks closing at an all-time high of $118.75 a share on 3 January 2000. However, after the dot-com bubble [[dot-com bubble#The bubble bursts|burst]], it settled at a post-bubble low of $4.05 on 26 September 2001.
 
 
In 2000, Yahoo! began using [[Google]] for search results. Over the next four years, it developed its own search technologies, which it began using in 2004. Yahoo! also revamped its mail service to compete with Google's Gmail in 2007. The company struggled through 2008, with several large layoffs.
 
 
In February 2008, [[Microsoft|Microsoft Corporation]] made an unsolicited bid to acquire Yahoo! for USD $44.6 billion. Yahoo! subsequently formally rejected the bid, claiming that it "substantially undervalues" Yahoo! and was not in the interest of its shareholders. Three years later, Yahoo! had a stock market capitalization of USD $22.24 billion.<ref>{{cite news|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7239220.stm|title=Yahoo rejects Microsoft approach|publisher=[[BBC News Online]]|accessdate=2008-02-17|date=2008-02-11}}</ref> [[Carol Bartz]] replaced cofounder Jerry Yang in January 2009.<ref>{{cite news|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8317476.stm |title=Job cuts help Yahoo profits surge |publisher=BBC News |date=2009-10-21 |accessdate=2011-05-31}}</ref> In September 2011 she was removed from her position at Yahoo! by the company's chairman Roy Bostock, and CFO [[Tim Morse]] was named as Interim CEO of the company.
