巴茨表示,雅虎目前在中东和北非有着规模庞大的业务。雅虎于1年半之前收购 Maktoob,该网站用户随后从3000万增长至5300万。这一地区的网民人数已经超过7000万。

雅虎的娱乐网站 OMG!Arabic 和女性生活方式网站 Helwa 在这一地区排名领先。雅虎还于半年前推出了阿拉伯文主页,目前雅虎新闻已经成为该地区排名第二的新闻网站。雅虎阿拉伯文主页目前在雅虎全球排名第四,仅落后于美国、印度和台湾地区。此外,雅虎在中东和北非的显示广告市场排名第一,市场份额为40%。

巴茨还表示,雅虎在意大利取得了不错的成绩,覆盖了意大利网络用户的66%。雅虎在7种内容领域进入前3,而在4种内容领域排名第一,包括邮件、新闻、问答和Flickr。这些在各自领域内排名第1的网站增长速度也快于市场平均水平。此外,雅虎在意大利的显示广告业务也创下历史记录,市场份额和营收都在增长。

巴茨指出,雅虎全球各地本地团队的执行力和增强用户参与的能力都在提升,这主要是由于产品团队的努力。

附:巴茨上周五发给全体员工的信

Last week was a crazy one – Dubai and Milan in five days! You may not know it, but the Middle East and Italy are two of our hottest markets in the EMEA region (and I do mean hot — it was 114 Fahrenheit and very humid in Dubai — I thought I was going to melt!).

First on the itinerary was Dubai, where I met with government officials, advertisers, the media, and our awesome Yahoos there.

I kicked things off Monday with the Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Shaikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum. Turns out he is a BIG Yahoo! fan. He told me that he’s on our sites every day to check the latest news and sports headlines. It makes sense — we’re huge in the Middle East and North Africa. Since we acquired Maktoob a year and a half ago, we’ve grown from 30 million to 53 million users. That’s impressive in a region with more than 70 million people online today.

We’re tops in entertainment with omg! Arabic, and with our women’s lifestyle site, Helwa. And we’re a strong #2 in News, thanks in part to our new Arabic homepage that launched six months ago. Already, it’s our fourth most popular homepage in the world — right behind the U.S., India and Taiwan. Meanwhile, Yahoo! is #1 in the Middle East and North Africa for display advertising with 40% market share.

Then on Wednesday it was off to Milan, where I visited with advertisers and our passionate Yahoos there. (I love that our Italian headquarters also happens to be located in one of the fashion capitals of the world — so convenient! An hour of retail therapy goes a long way).

We are winning it Italy. In a business review, our folks called themselves the Yahoo! “Italian Racing Team,” and I believe it. They’re firing on all cylinders. The country boasts some of the highest engagement numbers for us in the EU. We reach 66% of the online population in Italy. We’re top three in seven content categories, and #1 in four of them: Mail, News, Answers and Flickr. Plus, these #1 sites are growing faster than the market. And on the ad side, May was a record month for our display advertising in Italy — we’re taking share while growing revenue.

Throughout my trip to Italy and the Middle East, one thing came through loud and clear: Our local teams are able to execute and grow user engagement more quickly than ever before. This is thanks, in large part, to the great work of our Products org.

Take, for instance, our new Yahoo! Publishing Platform (aka LEGO). Our editors have put it to good use on our Italian Movies site. We’ve seen a 90% increase in page views, and a 60% increase in users. And that’s just in the first three weeks! This is exactly what we’ve been working so hard on for the past two years. We’ve completely re-architected our infrastructure, and it’s incredibly satisfying to see it pay off in so many parts of the world.

After all that fun, I headed back across the Atlantic and spent two good, solid days covering a lot of business in the Big Apple — press, investors, agencies and Yahoo! Sales leaders. Then it was back here to Sunnyvale for CEO staff meetings and a great “Coffee with Carol” with 30+ Yahoos.

I’m off to have a good weekend, hope you do too — especially you Dads on Father’s Day!
