Our goal is to make Yahoo! the best and the easiest-to-use place on the Web. We understand that talking to our users helps us better understand your needs, issues and concerns. And when we understand your needs better, we can continually make Yahoo! the best it can be.
We are looking for all types of people: Web novices and experts, Yahoo! users and non-users, people who use Yahoo! at home or at work, adults and teenagers ... everyone! Feel free to ask others to sign up too, especially those who are not yet on the Web!
We conduct research in many ways, such as:
You may choose which of these you prefer when you sign up.
- Visiting you at your location in a field study
- Inviting you to come into a Yahoo! office to participate in a usability study
- Speaking with you in a telephone interview
- Participating in an online focus group study
- Connecting with you with an online survey
Please provide as much information as possible (name and telephone number are required), since it helps us ask you better questions. We will contact you by email or phone with more information about our next study. (Yahoo! User Research will not use the e-mail address you provide for any other purpose.) You may not hear from us right away, but don't worry -- you'll be on our list!
Please note: Entry into the Participant Database does not guarantee participation in our research studies. When we plan for upcoming studies, we will query our database for potential participants. If you fit our criteria, we will give you a call or send an e-mail to schedule a time for you to come in to meet with us (or, for field studies, a time to come visit you).
