Yahoo has announced that it will close one of the earliest search engines AltaVista next week.

The search engine will be closed on 8 July, according to a blog post by Jay Rossiter, EVP of platforms for Yahoo, in an effort to allow the company to focus on new products.

Once closed, the AltaVista site will redirect users to the Yahoo! Search page instead.

Among a number of other closures, the company also closed its RSS alterts and Foxy Tunes, directing users to other Yahoo branded services instead.

It also announced that from 31 July, Yahoo! Downloads would no longer support third party downloads.
