Yahoo! began its journey at Stanford University. Jerry Yang and David Filo, both Electrical Engineering graduate students at the time, launched it in January 1994 with a website called "Jerry and David's Guide to the World Wide Web."
Rather than a searchable index of content, the Guide was a directory of other websites structured in a hierarchy. Jerry and David's Guide to the World Wide Web was renamed "Yahoo!" in April 1994. The word "YAHOO" is an acronym for "Yet Another Hierarchically Organized Oracle" or "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle." On January 18, 1995, the yahoo.com domain was launched.

Yahoo's pay and perks were far superior to those offered by any other company in India (with the exception of Google and a few others).
