Yahoo! Search Now Offers Suggestions
Yahoo!’s core service and search engine, Yahoo.com has been updated to provide suggestions to keywords that a user may be trying to search for.Â For example, in the screen shot below, as I was searching for MyBlogLog, before I started typing in log, a pull-down menu appeared displaying some suggestions.
Yahoo! believes that this will allow users to search faster.Â Yahoo!’s 2 biggest competitors, MSN and Google do not have the pull-down menus.Â While MSN and Live.com do not offer suggestions, Google does offer “Did you mean:” suggestions afterÂ aÂ search has been complete.
Making suggestions for users is essential.Â I definetely agree with Yahoo! that suggestions does make search faster.Â People write typos all the time and they want to recover quickly from it.Â I believe it is time for MSN and Live to get with the program.Â
 Google search for myblogolg (note: example of the “Did you mean:”)
