Google vs Yahoo!

I use Google, period!
Today, I have tried the terms “periostitis ossificans” to search for images using both Yahoo and Google.
That is a comparatively rare medical condition, by the way.
The result? Not surprisingly, Goole Images found it within a second and displayed the image I was looking for as the first one on the list.
The surprise? Yahoo had no idea about the image!
You may ask why that was surprising at all.
And here is the answer: The image was sitting at a site with quite heavy traffic.
What else? Well, that site is “owned” by Yahoo!

How can you use Yahoo engine to search for an image when it does not even know the images that are stored at their home?
They certainly have a long way to go.
