Yahoo Tweaks Finance

Yahoo Finance is launching a volley of tweaks to its Finance site tomorrow. The changes include the addition of interactive stock charts, improved message boards and business-related video clips from,, and SmartMoney. Yahoo will also be releasing a finance widget for websites, which we wrote about in mid-May.

The changes are clearly in response to Google Finance, which was released in March 2006.

Google Finance has not grabbed significant market share since its launch – Yahoo by comparison is the largest finance related website by page views. It boasts 10 million unique visitors and 467 million page views per month. About 1.5 million people a day visit Yahoo Finance. (source: comscore, June 2006)
