Yahoo Adds New Search Features

Here's what's new or perhaps more accurately, now available to all users.

1. Infinite Browse From Yahoo News

Look for a box labeled "Explore Related Content" at the bottom of individual news articles. Without having to run another search you'll notice that eight pieces of related content (news stories, photos, video, etc.) are linked to here while another article provides twelve.

2. Improved Search Shortcuts

...when you search for a movie or a touring musician, you can buy movie or concert tickets for local venues from the search results page, or use our QuickApp for Netflix to put movies in your Netflix Queue. Try searching for the movie, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and youíll see the entertainment shortcut with all the information you need about the film.

This video has demos of both features and here's results page for "Rolling Stones" You should see links for albums, images, videos, and Twitter.

3. Better Organization of Results from Yahoo Mobile at http://m.yahoo.com
Searching for a stock quote or business listing should trigger the improved organization that uses HTML5.

4.

Our enhanced Trending Now list on Yahoo.com [far right side of page] now takes you to slideshows for select topics that are spiking on the web. Weíve also added a slideshow feature to our image search, where youíll see slideshows of images from your friendís public Facebook albums after connecting your Facebook and Yahoo! accounts. These slideshows will also feature public images from Yahoo!ís content sites and from Flickr.
