Yahoo Adds Most Useful Information On Search Results

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:32 pm

Yahoo keeps improving their search engine with more useful features.

Today Yahoo! Introduced a new feature in their abstract generating algorithm that tries to guess the most used information about that page, and promotes it into the summaries for search results. Not only does Yahoo! try to figure out the most used information on the page, but also integrate relevant features from other parts of Yahoo!.

For instance, in the example above, you can see that the search engine have found Maps & Reviews on Yahoo! Local, and also found that Yahoo! Local can send the address and phone number to your mobile phone - so that’s there too! But of course, its not always just content from Yahoo! – the search engine also use content from the site itself if that’s more relevant - try searching for Wal-Mart or 511 or FedEx .
