The web Search industry  have seen sinc 1996 ( 15-200 years) and   this makes the industry mature enough to expect higher valuations.At the same time, Communication and Ecommerce companies on average been around about 10-15 year, while gaming ( online/mobile ) are comparatively newer  and hence valuations lower 

SaaS and B2b has been termed as the ” way to get rich fast”which means.. get high valuations within a short time and they probably sell it off at a premium or  go the IPO way

The End of Yahoo: How Long Before its Sold off

There are few surer ways for an executive to lose a good reputation than to be CEO of Yahoo Inc. Just ask Carol Bartz or Terry Semel.This infographic, titled “The Rise And Fall Of Yahoo,” gives you a play by play of the company’s history, acquisitions, highs, lows and more.

As the company searches for Bartz’s replacement, its biggest obstacle is likely the track record of past CEOs who have made this Hot Seat kind of Haunted.When Carol Bartz took the wheel at Yahoo! in January 2009 she was seen as the tough-talking, bottom-line oriented CEO who led software developer Autodesk to prodigious revenue and share price growth. One of her first acts was to tell employees that she would “drop-kick to fucking Mars” anyone who was caught leaking company secrets. Now it is Ms Bartz who has been drop-kicked out of the company.

Carol Bartz  as she left Yahoo Tuesday, she was viewed as an executive incapable of innovation and lacking vision, an executive who failed to move Yahoo’s stock price or operating performance in any meaningful way.She is also widely seen as having made a bad deal to hand Yahoo’s search engine operations to Microsoft.

“Bartz’s demise underscores that fallen angels in the Internet space are really hard to turn around,” Needham & Co. analyst Laura Martin wrote in a report Wednesday. “Her lack of success raises the risk that perhaps it simply can’t be done by anyone (unless you’re Steve Jobs).
On September 6th news leaked via AllThingsD,  that she had been ousted in a surprise coup by Yahoo!’s board. Official confirmation swiftly followed, with the news that Tim Morse, the firm’s chief financial officer, would take over as interim chief executive, supported by a leadership committee of senior managers.

Part of the reason Yahoo’s CEOs face such difficulty is because, sources say, they are just one prong of a leadership trifecta, with the board and Yang also having significant input into the decision-making process. Those influential camps are often not on the same page.

 For example, the decision to fire Bartz without naming a successor, along with the plan to initiate a “strategic review,” suggested that the company was laying the groundwork for a sale or merger. But Yang told executives during a meeting on Wednesday morning that the company was not for sale, according to a person familiar with the matter.
