Yahoo Search Pad Being Tested

Yahoo Search Pad Being Tested [ysearchblog.com]
Today, we are testing a new feature called Search Pad to help users effortlessly capture websites that they find on Yahoo! Search and organize that information to complete important tasks.

Our user studies show that people often use word-processing documents, sticky notes, emails, bookmarks (or a combination of the above) to record what they find on the Web. These methods can be quite cumbersome and require extra steps which are time-consuming and distracting. Search Pad tackles this problem by intelligently detecting users’ research intent, automatically collecting visited sites, and providing simple tools for users to organize and add notes – all in one place. Users can easily edit, delete, and re-order notes they’ve taken on a topic, and then print them out or email them to friends and family. They can also save the notes to access later by logging in with their Yahoo! ID. This helps to make online research much more productive and convenient.

Search Pad is currently only in testing and is not visible to all users.

One reason Slurp has gotten a robots.txt DISALLOW for the last three years!

Awful news for webmasters who create original content.

Any body found how to specifically block "Search Pad" yet

From the Scraper gods what more is there to expect

This will fail because it cannot compete with the power of the post-it note and how you can place it anywhere outside the screen ;)
