Yahoo was once a very popular website offering mailing service. So, we can see a lots of people who have been using internet for a long time using yahoo mail and yahoo messenger.
However, yahoo failed to develop in other fields such as search engine, etc. If you take Google, it did not become popular in the first day itself. It started offering many services such as Google Search engine, Mailing service, Gtalk, and even the browser named Google Chrome. Google has also bought YouTube and Orkut too. Can you believe that Google has even released an OS namely Chrome OS?
Hence, many people became familiar with the name Google and they started using its softwares and services. But if you take yahoo, it did not put more effort in making new thing and it stopped only with yahoo mail and yahoo answers.
This is the reason why yahoo is not much preferred. However, people who are interested in Yahoo answers still use yahoo mail. I'm sure yahoo is none-the-less benefited from yahoo answers and I think that's the reason why yahoo has no interests in taking much risks as Google does.
