But this is too much to take in all at once! :)
Google dance and Y! changing their look...
I am noticing different OV results but it's not consistent yet.
At least 800x600/1024x768 users will "see more" up top with the cleaner look.
It's a brilliant move on Yahoo's part. They've got some top notch products. They might as well flaunt them.
But, flexing their market power with "Inside Yahoo" won't be good for a lot of little guys.
seems interesting that they are showing updated pages faster than google, at least in chicago
like what i'm seeing so far ;-)
<edit> I also like that they only show 1 page per site, makes it much easier to look at and it has better results I don't know the need for 2 pages from a site <edit>
I have noted too that Yahoo tend to filter the google results so that it is less common for two pages from the same site to be displayed next to each other in the serps.
They have done this for a while and often seem to have the results settled before googles' www1...
Do like the new design - much cleaner.
I think that Yahoo have been splitting the overture results like that for a while now - dont use Yahoo to much though - can someone else confirm?
I just tried data recovery and it's showing 4 results at the top and 2 at the bottom. I also tried a few searches where bids are under a buck and see a mix of 4/2 and 2/3.
Do a search on something like shopping, auctions and note the inside yahoo at the top of the results page.
OK. I did a search. I see:
Yahoo! Search top left. A banner add to the right of that. On top of the banner add I see:
Search Home ¦ Yahoo! ¦ Help
below that is:
Your Search: with the input field and my term.
Inside that rea is:
Advanced Web Search
Related: <snipped related terms> More...
below that I see:
Web Directory News Yellow Pages Images What's New ¦ Send Feedback powered by HP
I do not see anything about 'inside yahoo' at all.
<shrug> Maybe it's something they rolled out on certain servers? I did a search to find the text 'inside yahoo' and it found nothing. Is it a graphic or text link?
Or I am totally blind. ;)
Wow. yeah. If you sell a product like 'camcorders' for example- that may snatch a fair amount of searches.
Well, I guess the old page had tons of banner adds, but this is more direct. "interesting"
