"Some Yahoo merchants are using a trick to boost their presence in the company’s shopping search results. Instead of opening one store in the company’s shopping mall, they are opening multiple stores, all under different names, but offering mostly the same inventory at almost the same prices. The result is that a customer who searches for a product on Yahoo Shopping may find that they get multiple results from the same merchant without knowing it."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
