Mr. Donald Lim
Yehey.com is a Philippine portal and search engine.Yehey! is one of the most recognized internet portals in the Philippines and was created to be the website that caters to the information and communication needs of Filipinos online by providing the widest selection of Philippine based topics and interests.
I am wondering why they chose "Yehey" as their brand name. People might mislead because it sounds almost the same with Yahoo.com. But, I guess they really intended to associate the brand name of their search engine with Yahoo.com. It's one of the marketing techniques they could use and by associating it with Yahoo.com they could grab a certain percentage of the marketshare of Yahoo.com. Having a Pinoy-owned Search Engine is a brilliant idea considering that Philippines always on top in terms of internet usage, hours of online, percentage of share in every social networking like multiply, facebook, friendster, etc and even in just searching on some related topics on google, yahoo, ask.com and other search engines. There are 27+M Pinoys online, 83% of online pinoys are part of social networks like Facebook( we are 1st in then world), 98.6% online pinoys watch youtube and number two in blogging.
Features of the Website: TOL - Yehey!'s version of IM, Boards, Chat ,Match ,Jobs, eCards , News, Archives, Images, What's New, Polls, Forex, Directory, Yellow Pages and Kaban- An, Pinoy internet payment solutions and the counterpart of Paypal here in the Philippines
Yehey.com is now building a mutually beneficial partnership with Cebu Bloggers' Society because they considered bloggers as one of the effective distribution channels for site content. They have already met bloggers in Manila areas and now they are extending its partnership with Cebu Bloggers. They considered bloggers as innovative, unique, fun and avenue for quality content.
