Yahoo! is a search engine.

No evidence of subject-specific blocking

As of January 2018, the ISGP site was hit #2 on Yahoo for the search term "Dutroux affair"[1] - as it was on Bing.[2] By contrast, Google appeared to have blocked the domain for that search term - not listing it in the top 100 hits, in spite of presenting several pages which linked to that page.


In April 2015, Yahoo began secretly scanning the incoming emails, plus all files, attachments, links and graphic material, of its hundreds of millions of users to comply with an order from the U.S. intelligence community[3][4][5]
