Yahoo shuts down Yahoo! Tech

Yahoo has announced that it will be shutting down its technology vertical site ‘Yahoo! Tech’ on 11th March.

Speaking on its blog, Yahoo informed users that, as of next month the four-year-old site will be closing. All personal details and profiles for the site will be detailed too. Anyone trying to visit the site will be redirected to the Technology section of Yahoo! News.

“Yahoo will continue to offer technology related content from our bloggers and partner community, and we will also migrate selected archived news stories and reviews to Yahoo Technology News,” the company said.

Yahoo! Tech was launched in 2006, aiming to attracted ordinary people with an interest in technology. According to Yahoo, it provides friendly advice that makes it easy to find, research, compare, buy, and use all sorts of gadgets including laptops, digital cameras, cell phones, MP3 players and TVs.

However the site has not helped Yahoo in terms of search and advertising. Yahoo has already pulled the plug on various products like GeoCities, Jumpcut and Farechase, over the last year.
