Yahoo! Search is Live on Maktoob

Yahoo! Search is now live on Maktoob, the leading online Arabic-language community. This first launch from the Yahoo!-Maktoob partnership combines Yahoo!’s popular product and services with Maktoob’s compelling local content, bringing users the best of both sites.

We announced the acquisition of Maktoob in August, 2009, with plans to launch Arabic versions of Yahoo! Mail, Messenger, Search, and our homepage. We encourage Arabic-speaking Internet users to try out Yahoo! Search at Maktoob. Of course, you can also go to the Maktoob home page and enter any Arabic query to search the Web.

This is just the beginning of our long-term commitment to deliver relevant Arabic-language content and services to the region. Stay tuned for more news about our efforts in these emerging markets.
