I feel good. The new Yahoo! Search improvements make me happy. What's nice is that my dad likes it. He said he "loved it." This is a good thing. Not that I'm trying to please my father, it's just that he's still tentative about ATMs.
Search should bring information to you. It should anticipate your needs and provide you with more than what you requested. The new Yahoo! improvements are the step in the right direction.
Here are some good results:
- Darjeeling Limited
- Santa Cruz, CA
- Beastie Boys
- David Beach (i like that the "also try" seems to be about me, but I'm being modest)
The best part about the improvements are the type-ahead suggestions. This helps with spelling and getting a better result the first time. I can only hope that the search ads are improved by this as well.
Here's the techcrunch review that sums it up well. Now to get google, yahoo, ask, and one more together to discuss SERP interfaces for the next Search SIG.
