I think I just woke up! Has Yahoo always showed "Related Searches" at the bottom of their result page?

If so, is this in the Yahoo db or Google?

That noise is only me kicking my self for just noticing! LOL

Thanks,
Spinner

WS, I have never noticed it before and they don't do it on every search and some of their suggestions bring up Web Pages results and not even the directory. It is interesting but am not sure what to make of it, whether it is an indicator of what people are searching for mostly or not.

James..I'm not sure what KWs it does not suggest further searches for, but I did some general ones (Computers, Mp3. gifts, Jobs) and they all had "related searches".

It seems to be in the Yahoo db.

Can anyone else shed light on this subject?

TIA,
Spinner

Good topic, got me started looking around, didn't find anything specific at Yahoo. Here's some general info on related searches:
