Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) is working on a new homepage. The current homepage receives over 100 million U.S. and 314 million global visitors per day. That’s over 9 billion visits per month. This is why Yahoo! must be careful when making changes. Below is a screenshot of the new upcoming homepage:
The dashboard on the left will link to a mail button where users can link to multiple mail accounts in a similar fashion that AOL.com does now. More features will be added on the left dashboard as time goes on. The new homepage will have a featured section that will feature content from Yahoo! Buzz. The search form will remain at the top with a built-in Search Assist.
On the Yahoo! homepage, certain applications will be previewed to be added to a personalized version of the site. This gives ambitious developers a reason to create a valuable application around Yahoo!’s various APIs. Tapan Bhat, SVP of Front Doors, Communities, and Network Services at Yahoo! announced the testing of the new homepage on the Yahoo! Blog.
