Yahoo Blog Search
There seems to be a whole lot of buzz about Yahoo’s new blog search and it’s integration with Yahoo News. A search on the term ‘earthquake’ (try it) gives the user a list of news headlines in the main content window AND a list of relevant blog search results in the right hand column.
Robert Scoble seems fairly unimpressed by the new tool, as does Steve Rubel, but I think this endeavor send an important signal: blog searches have become a true companion to mainstream media. This tool and layout seems to say that loud and clear.
