looks still to be powered by Google, until some time before the end of the year when they will be switching to their purchase, Inktomi.

<snippet> To lessen its dependence, Yahoo last month paid $279.5 million in cash and stock to buy search engine specialist Inktomi. Yahoo isn't using Inktomi's tools in its search engine yet, but plans to before the end of the year. </snippet>

It's linked to as a "preview" from the main Yahoo page:

I'm not entirely convinced that Yahoo will abandon Google's database, at least not anytime soon. I've read that same "before the end of the year" statement in innumerable articles since Monday, but none of them gives a source for it -- it appears they're all just quoting each other.

The Yahoo/Google contract is nonexclusive, so there's no reason to think that they can't use the Google database along with Inktomi technology and even along with listings from the smaller Inktomi database -- or they could "Inktomi power" only certain services, like the shopping search. I've read at least one article (at CBS Marketwatch, have to become a member to read it) that states that this new search rollout actually is using "some" of Inktomi's technology.

Using pure Inktomi results would mean either sticking with a smaller database (and so less relevant results), or beginning to spider much more aggressively to build a bigger Inktomi database (and so devaluing the paid inclusion method that Inktomi has relied on). The first option doesn't seem likely if it's true, as they're saying, that search is now considered a priority at Yahoo.

I don't know. I wouldn't mind if they were to switch to pure Inktomi (I don't search at Yahoo so I'm speaking as a marketer not as a user), but I can see plausible scenarios in which they won't.
