Yahoo Stores Down On Cyber Monday

28 Nov

Yahoo is really stepping on their johnsons lately. First it was the publicity hit they took with the closing of Yahoo 360 and now its having a revenue impact when Yahoo Merchant Solutions bit the dust for large parts of Cyber Monday.  With merchants already scrambling to do well this holiday season, you can bet they weren’t quite with this outage.

Yahoo responds:

 “We are aware that Merchant Solutions was experiencing some problems today [Monday] due to heavy holiday traffic on Yahoo! powered merchant stores. We are aware of the issues and are working towards a solution as quickly as possible. Yahoo! makes every effort to prevent outages. We continue to put strategies in place that will minimize the impact that extremely heavy traffic periods have on our merchants. Yahoo!’s relationship with our merchants is extremely important to us and we value their loyalty. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we are continuing to put processes in place to prevent further disruptions. ”

Oh spin control, oh spin control, of all the lies most timely (humm to Oh Christmas tree tune)

Ahh spin control…I love it.
