Yahoo! Philippines shuts down, redirects to Yahoo! SG
We’ve already learned about Yahoo! PH’s entire editorial team being given their walking papers a couple months back, leaving the website no original source of local content except syndicated stories from partner publishers.
This week, global HQ made an announcement in a blog post that a number of services will also be shut down, including the Yahoo! Philippines website.
Yahoo.com.ph now redirects to SG.yahoo.com
Not long after the announcement, the Philippine homepage of Yahoo! PH is no longer active and being redirected to Yahoo! SG.
Yahoo! PH was among the most active homepage in the region with active local content. Yahoo! PH also popularized the annual TechnoStorm event and the much publicized Yahoo! Celebrity Awards.
