If you want to know that what Yahoo stands for then YAHOO stands for Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle. If you want to know about the future expansion of Yahoo, then it is a very lucrative site and now it is competing lots of competitors like msn and google. But still has to do more in order to capture big chunk of market share.

Yahoo is the name of one of the most popular web portals; it was started originally in January 1994 by Jerry Yang and David Filo, two Stanford graduates and current Yahoo chiefs. Yahoo was incorporated in March 1995 and since then has grown exponentially; today it is regarded by many as the website with the maximum number of visitors on the Internet.

According to many people the full form of Yahoo is considered to be Yet Another Hierarchically Officious Oracle which implied the number of website directories similar to Yahoo. However according to the founders Yang and Filo the name was taken from Jonathan Swift's satirical work Gulliver's Travels in which Yahoos are rough and unsophisticated beings that somewhat resemble humans.

Yahoo is also an exclamation used to indicate jubilance and to show joy. Some of the other expansions of Yahoo are You Are Hooked Over and Over, You Always Have Other Options and Yet Another Hierarchically Organized Oracle.
