|Yahoo Reportedly Testing New Mobile Search Interface : eAskme|
It is noticeable that this new interface will remove “Powered by Bing” branding, which used to appear on the bottom right of search.
This branding shows as the result of deal between Yahoo and Bing in 2010. This deal was about Yahoo’s search business outsourced to Microsoft.
Technically, Yahoo and bing deal never included mobile search. So now Yahoo may intend to run its own mobile search independently. It is also said that results will not be any different than they are at present.

Tis indicated that there is nothing hidden and changes are only in design. Business Insider report also said that Yahoo is working on its own mobile search engine.
Right now Yahoo has very small share of mobile search engine market. So is a a new test of Yahoo mobile pages without Bing branding, to see if it can bring some good results. Now the question is, why Yahoo suddenly remove Bing’s branding?
